No matter what the outcome will be, it is a heartwarming gesture from elder brother — Norway gained independence in 1905.Today I learned that Norway is considering giving a mountain to Finland as a 100th birthday present...
Sounds good, eh @Urmas
Fascinating, I enjoyed reading that.Today I learned that...
Below Constanța county close to the Black Sea and the Bulgarian border, lies a cave that has remained isolated for 5.5 million years.
Despite a complete absence of light and a poisonous atmosphere, the cave is crawling with life. There are unique spiders, scorpions, woodlice and centipedes, many never before seen by humans, and all of them owe their lives to a strange floating mat of bacteria.
About the same size as "a mere shuttle ferry" like this:Today I learned that the Titanic was quite small compared with modern day cruise liners.
SHAPED TO BE PERFECTThe production of the new LNG powered fast ferry Megastar started in Meyer Turku Yard in Finland on 4th of August 2015, on 9th of February 2016 the keel of Megastar was laid and the construction process in the dry dock began. According to the plans, her delivery takes place in the beginning of 2017. Megastar will be 212 meters long, can accommodate altogether 2800 passengers and will start operating on Tallinn-Helsinki route under the brand Tallink Shuttle.
The new environmentally friendly ship uses LNG as fuel and she will comply with the new and stricter emission regulations for the ECA areas including the Baltic Sea. The ship, with a gross tonnage of 49 000 and service speed of 27 knots, will bring significant improvement in energy efficiency as well as new innovative solutions to the service on board. Megastar will be a symbol for new era in the fast ferry services on the Baltic Sea.
That photo is quite illuminating!Today I learned that the Titanic was quite small compared with modern day cruise liners.
