5min 52sec #TedEd animated clip - How #Magellan circumnavigated the globe

On September 6, 1522, the "Victoria" sailed into harbour in southern Spain. 

The battered vessel and its 18 sailors were all that remained of a fleet that had departed three years before. 

Yet her voyage was considered a success, for the "Victoria" had achieved something unprecedented – the first circumnavigation of the globe. 

Ewandro Magalhaes shares the story of Magellan’s journey.
