Throw em in there with a couple of great white sharks and they’ll train harder
I'm not dissing the facility and real world testing often trumps models but would a computer generated model of the boat hull and the sea states required not do the same nowadays. You can model different seas, saltwater buoyancy and also air wind conditions which this facility cannot do. At present, the sea state can be created but not wind speed and direction often hitting these tall structures out on a open sea.
Go save a dolphin
everybody be smiling till they get silenced and get forced to make YouTube vidoes.
Imagine yourself experiencing honey I shrunk the kids IRL and being placed on that tiny boat
ive never seen more wasted potencial of a good video, damn...
Greating from nasa
the united states is great, isnt it
2 months before the Golden Globes, Lisa Marie got plastic surgery
I dont think russia has this.
Me: Mum can we have Elon Musk
Mum: No honey, we have Elon Musk at home
Elon Musk at home:
I wish I was put into stem as a kid :( I love science now and I’m 25.
Stop trying to make fetch happen. 😂
Satisfaction at its finest pir_muTzYM8&t=1m24s 1:24
superposition = a double up, neat
what do you do for a living? I engineer an ocean
So they can test ships, before they scale them up 1000x over at the expense of millions of dollars.*
imagine falling in..................... and nobody knows because the waves are so big 😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶
