Unmanned ship crossed East China sea in most eco-friendly manner
Unmanned ships are the talk of the day, with a number of corporations already in race to be first on market with workable models. Unmanned ships meanwhile, do sail around, demonstrating miracles, far outperforming those created by modern breakthrough technologies. Here’s one – a Chinese coastal cargo ship, a rusty bucket to be exact, drifted ashore in front of Dasi Train Station, Toucheng Township, Yilan County, northeast Taiwan, on Sep 28. Investigation found the breakaway ship to be Chinese, drifting from Yangtze estuary Shanghai, to northeast Taiwan coast, crossing East China sea from north to south, throughout most heavily trafficked sea lanes in the world. The trip was 100% sustainable, no emissions, no pollution and no crew to throw plastics overboard.
As of now, Taiwanese authorities don’t know what to do with this eco-friendly miracle. They tried to tow her away, but the ship saddled reefs, and there’s risk she’ll sink right after being refloated.
