you're forgetting that there's only so close that you can pack spheres together. so you would only need about 3/4 the number (pi/18^.5 * 1.5*10^9) - 1.1*10^9 balls, and you'd be left with 1/4 the water still in the ship

A lot of the modern world was invented by Scots. Maxwell's equations, animal cloning, telephones, trains, televisions, penicillin.
