Ships are purposely sunk for different reasons - scuttled to keep out of the hands of enemy forces, or decommissioned and transformed into artificial reefs. But in the future it might not be only ships that are sunk. Imagine if a towering skyscraper was facing the wrecking ball and instead of demolishing it the owners brought in a Mega Mover to lower it onto a barge, float it out to sea and sink it as an artificial reef! In Brownsville, Texas a World War Two attack transport ship, the U.S.S. Queens - later renamed the Texas Clipper - needs to be scuttled to create a desperately needed artificial reef. But placing a 500-foot long ship at a precise spot 130 feet down on the bottom of the ocean presents enormous challenges. One mistake... one miscalculation and an ecological wonder becomes an ecological nightmare.moreless
