700 Ton SHIP FLIPS & Goes Vertical Inside Seconds!

So apparently, the navy has one thing known as Floating Instrument Platform, which is an open ocean analysis vessel and it will possibly shift from a horizontal to a vertical platform in a comparatively quick time period. It`s over 350 toes lengthy when it`s horizontal, however when the ship flips and it goes vertical solely 55 toes are above the water. The remainder is partially stuffed with water and submerged for analysis functions. It has a weight of an unimaginable 711 tonnes and has a crew of 5 folks, with as much as eleven scientific employees. It`s actually a surprise of recent engineering know-how and its achievements.

This video depicts the FLIP reworking from a traditional, horizontal place, the place it may be towed to any location, to a vertical platform that may be anchored and from which scientific checks might be concluded. At first it appears to be like like a ship is sinking, however after some time it turns into clear that it`s really supposed to try this. The scientists and the crew are actually calm and nonetheless because it goes up, which wouldn`t be the case in a shipwreck state of affairs. So, this factor operates on the west coast of the US however it will possibly go wherever and be self-sustainable. Isn`t that wondrous?
