In 1492 how did Columbus' voyage change the world?

His voyage really didn't change the world of Europe, but it did change the world of the Native Americans. The landing on Hispaniola brought together the New world and the old world and because of that it will never be the same for Native Americans. With the Europeans came disease, foreign plants and insects, entire environments changed, slavery, and death. Columbus was just the first of the people who were to follow him into the America's. In truth, his return to Spain was not much and very few people knew about his landing on Hispaniola. The Spanish crown was also not impressed with him since he didn't bring back the gold, spices, silks, and gems he expected to find. Columbus was pretty much a failure.
