Lots and lots of equivalents to 50 atomic bombs! They are in the Canal now and many more on their way bringing big money to Panama and hopefully no kaboom!
So just how safe are these potential bombs … and how is all that highly explosive gas kept safe and kept from blowing up half of Panama?
This is almost an hour long, but once you start watching you will be hooked. This is a fun, very understandable explanation of just how these giant LNG tankers work and safely and cheaply deliver natural gas around the world through the new Panama Canal locks. Really! It is fascinating and very understandable and interesting even if you aren’t a scientific or mechanical nerd.
