Here is one of the most fascinating videos presented by Richard Hammond - it belongs to the Engineering Connections series and is dedicated to the extremely large LNG carriers. This place is one of the most interesting and strangest places on the planet - it is just inside of a huge technically sophisticated machine - it is a tanker with the cargo on board that is capable of powering the whole London - just imagine it - for a week, a cargo equivalence to energy to the fifty five nuclear bombs.
This enormously large vessel is carrying LNG, i.e. liquefied natural gas, in enormous amounts, millions of litres of the stuff - this cargo turns into highly flammable gas at the normal room temperature and that is the reason why people want it - they can use this gas for various purposes, including cooking and heating their homes.
