Holy Ship! This Boat Is BIG.

Loose lips sink ships? Not this one! It's hard to imagine this beast of the sea actually floating!

Wired photographer, Alastair Philip Wiper, was given unprecedented access to the largest ship in the world being build in South Korea. The photos are stunning. 

The Maersk Triple E is, as you might have guessed, the largest ship ever built. Seeing the different elements that had to come together to complete the ship is awe inspiring. 

At 194 feet wide and 1,312 feet long, the Matz Maersk Triple E can carry 18,000 containers, the propellers weigh 70 tons each and it's too big for the Panama Canal.

This brings new meaning to the term "ship-shape"!
