1505 AD, Spanish explorer Juan de Bermúdez discovers a new island. Lacking any imagination he names it after himself, Bermuda.
At the same time, the first pocket watch is made in Europe (irrelevant but I love pocket watches).

1507 AD Martin Waldseemüller publishes his Cosmographiae Introductio ("Introduction to Universal Cosmography"), where he is the first to show America as a separate continent, naming it in honour of Amerigo Vespucci, a name that was accepted (well, better than to call the whole continent Colombia).

Gene ID 1513: Also known as
CTSO; PKND; PYCD; CTS02; CTSO1; CTSO2
Summary
The protein encoded by this gene is a lysosomal cysteine proteinase involved in bone remodeling and resorption. This protein, which is a member of the peptidase C1 protein family, is predominantly expressed in osteoclasts. However, the encoded protein is also expressed in a significant fraction of human breast cancers, where it could contribute to tumor invasiveness. Mutations in this gene are the cause of pycnodysostosis, an autosomal recessive disease characterized by osteosclerosis and short stature.

1520 AD, Pope Leo X issues the bull Exsurge Domine (Arise O Lord), threatening Martin Luther with ex-communication if he does not recant his position on indulgences and other Catholic doctrines. This is the first step in the schism of the Romeo catholic Church.
