Stanford University PhD student Cassandra Brooks recently spent two months sailing through Antarctica’s Ross Sea aboard an ice-breaker. Rarely a dull moment by the looks of it, including even the occasions the vessel was temporarily trapped by the sea ice.
The building of one of the world’s largest ships, a Triple-E class container vessel, has been crunched down into just over one minute. It almost looks likes a LEGO model is being assembled at times, given the number of prefabricated components that are, almost quite casually, just slotted into its structure.
Here’s hoping they do something like this for the construction of Titanic II.
Living vicariously thanks to YouTube. Just the thing I used to dream of trying… super heating a metallic object of some sort, in this case a lump of nickel, and then dropping it on top of a large block of ice.
