Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean that led to general European awareness of the American continents… in the Western Hemisphere.

Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean in 1492. One way to rememberit is a rhyme. "Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue infourteen hundred ninety two."
Because he wanted to find another way to the far East, to countries such as China and India. These countries had a lot of high valued resources, such as silk and spices, and Columbus wanted to find a shorter and faster way to this place. But instead he hit America. And an interesting fact is that he… thought he had come to India, and that's why the native Americans are called Indians, even though they are not at all related to India. ( Full Answer )

If there was one it probably came from Prince Henry's map school and he had aPortuguese pilot who sort of had a map, but they had an incomplete map, didn't they? I don't remember reading that he had a map because he had to keep taking readings and his journals don't tell of a map.
Columbus did sail across the Atlantic. The Pacific Ocean is on the west cost of the Americas.
Columbus was looking for a faster trade route to Asia to make transportation more profitable. He was trying to find a western route, a quicker trade route, to get spices and riches for Spain and impress the monarchs who had sent him. Columbus mistakenly believed the Atlantic Ocean was much smaller t…han it really is, and when he first landed on an island in the Bahamas, believed he had reached the East Indies. When he saw the dark-skinned people (Native Americans), he called them "Indians" It was a total accident. A: In the Bible,the earth is described as a Sphere, not a flat circle like most believed at the time. Christopher Columbus read this, believed it, and then set out to gain fame, fortune and the notoriety of society's most influential by sailing around the earth. Odd that no one ever seems to elaborate on the bible's accuracy in this account. He wanted to find a knew way to get to the east. He thought it was faster. It is reported he had read the works of Marco Polo. I think he wanted fame and riches and that was his primary reason. Please see the Related Question below. ( Full Answer )
No explorers all ready knew it was round. This is something that was written in a book that everyone started to use as fact. There is often mistakes like this in history.
Christopher Columbus was an explorer. Some people viewed him as a hero and others as a villain. He discovered many new lands, but as he discovered these lands he killed many innocent people that treated him kindly.
He thought sailing the Atlantic ocean would bring him faster to India, and eventually make him famous for discovering a new route that leads to Asia. Remember Christopher Columbus set out to find India because they had good spices and good trading material. There was one major problem, the Atlantic …led to the Americas not to India. When Christopher finally reached land he though he was in India, but he was actually in North America. Since he still thought he was in India Christopher called the natives Indians, thus creating a new word to call the Native Americans. Christopher Columbus would later eventually die still thinking that he found India. ( Full Answer )
It was uphill most of the way.... No - just kidding. Longer than what? Walking? Swimming? It took a long time because in those days, sailing ships didn't exactly zoom across the water. They had to use currents and winds and sometimes neither of them cooperated.
