10. Prelude FLNG
The Prelude FLNG is the largest offshore facility that has ever been built, and is a floating liquefied gas platform. At 1,600 feet long and 243 feet wide, more than 260,000 tons of steel were needed to build it. When it’s fully loaded it displaces more than 600,000 tons, which is about 5 times that of the largest aircraft carriers in the US Navy.
The platform doesn’t actually have any propulsion of its own, instead it relies on other ships to move it into position. Once it’s in place, it has everything it needs to extract natural gas from the seabed and store it until it can offload to support ships. It cost about 12 billion dollars to construct, and is designed to withstand the forces of category 5 hurricanes. It has been placed in position in Western Australian waters, and is due to come online at some point during 2018.
9. Typhoon Class Submarine
The Soviet built Typhoon Class nuclear powered submarine is, quite simply, the largest submersible vehicle ever to have been built. It was designed to counter the US built Ohio-class submarines. It managed to improve on them, in terms of size at least. At 574 feet long, and equipped with 200 weapons, including 20 nukes, it was one of the most feared vessels from the Cold War. It functions as its own weapons platform, and is designed to keep its crew and munitions at sea for as long as needed.
This sub can stay underwater for up to 120 days down to 1,300 feet, only needing to re-surface to replenish supplies for its 160 crew. It’s such a formidable construction that, in the 90’s, they considered turning some of the subs into cargo vessels for use under the ice caps, with estimates suggesting they would be able to transport 10,000 tons of cargo on board.
8. Saturn V
The Saturn V is the most revolutionary vehicle ever designed by humankind. Controlled by computer technology with far less power than you’ll find even in your smartphone, it was designed to take three people to the moon and back. The first unmanned test flight was launched in 1967, and a total of 13 of the rockets took flight between then and 1973. The Saturn V was responsible for the first moon landing, the subsequent Apollo missions, and for launching the Skylab space station.
Each part of the rocket was used during a mission, with only the command module making it back to earth. The rocket’s first stage held 203,400 gallons of kerosene and 318,000 gallons of liquid oxygen for lift off. This stage was released to fall back to earth when it reached an altitude of 42 miles, when the second stage containing 260,000 gallons of liquid hydrogen and 80,000 gallons of liquid oxygen would fire. The third stage took over 9 minutes and 9 seconds after launch, and provided the remaining thrust needed to get to orbit. Then it would engage again to take the rocket towards the moon.
This was the first multi-purpose space vehicle to begin our exploration beyond our planet, and it was a monster. When fuelled on the Launchpad, it was 363 feet tall, could lift a weight of 130 metric tons, and had a thrust of 7.5 million pounds. To put that into perspective, the space shuttle was half the size and could lift a weight of about 25 tons, so despite technology and efficiencies improving, the capabilities of the Saturn V have never been reached again.
