Pacific Ocean

Surface Area: 64,196,000 square miles (166,266,877 square kilometers)
Water Volume: More than half of the Earth's open water supply

Holding more than half of the Earth's open water supply, the Pacific Ocean was named by explorer Ferdinand Magellan in 1520, with "pacific" translating to "peaceful" in Portuguese.
