Have you ever wondered how giant ships ended up in water when in the first place it was built on land? If you are asking how did they do it, you have to check out the video.
A ship weights thousands of tons and it would be likely impossible for or any equipment to drag it from a far place to a river or ocean. This is why shipyards are located near the waters so it would be easy for the shipbuilders to deploy it.
In this video, you will see how the Lockheed Martin-led industry team launched the new Littoral Combat Ship Detroit into the Menominee River in northwestern Michigan. You will also witness the huge splash of water when the vessel descended.
It was intense and pretty impressive. I hope I can witness this in person someday.
