Mother Nature is a glorious thing. Just as she creates, she can also destroy her creations in the blink of an eye. That's why mankind has fought her intentions throughout history, creating better, stronger materials to withstand Mother Nature's wrath. We have come a long way, with houses that endure earthquakes and ships that bend to the seas!
The German naval fleet has a container ship, called MSC BUSAN. Able to carry almost a whopping 90 metric tonnes, she is a beast. The crew took this footage while encountering some heavy waves out on the ocean. It requires some focus, but a few second into the video you can clearly see the body of the MSC BUSAN giving way to the will of nature, in order not to break! Incredible!
Show your friends this marvel of naval engineering by sharing this video!

    Be aware that the ship is made to shift and bend in heavy waves. If they did not move and give to stresses they would snap into. It looks spooky but it is how they are designed.

    90,000 tonnes (not 90!). And if it didn't flex, it would snap.
