    This is Maersk's newest containership, worlds largest, 400 meters. I would say probably the largest moving thing on earth. Each of those containers is basically an 18 wheeler trailer. Better get out of the way I bet it's hard to stop. And it's a Daewoo. A little bigger than their cars.

    That's an amazing feat....I think it's cool to see things like this. Can you imagine what someone from 100 years ago would think if they saw that thing in person....

    I was just over in S. Korea, visiting the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard, that place is massive and they apparantly launch a ship every four days! Over 45,000 people reportedly work in the one shipyard.

    I was surprised by the 185M, thought it would be more.
