One of the things that I love to think about is technology advanced space ships. When I do end up thinking about this I like to think about how they are built. What they would do. How the would be used and, where they would go. Whenever I get lost in my thoughts, I can see my inside one of these spacecraft exploring the universe as if i’m riding my bike around the neighborhood.
Whenever I picture one of these magnificent boats of space being made I think of the final scene from Star Trek “Beyond” when the U.S.S. Enterprise is being rebuilt. I would picture some sort of advance engine type firing up and preparing to warp with a low humming sound and the humming gets louder until they fire and the ship begins to move at immense speed to some far away solar system, even a galaxy where mankind has never seen before. Speaking of exploration, I imagine ships all over the universe thriving at the fact that there could be a new home (not saying earth isn’t good for humanity) and searching for minerals and more elements on the periodic table trying to advance our technology even more. Wouldn’t you want to see the vastness us outer space without full astronaut training?
The Mary Celest was a ship who’s job was to carry 1,701 barrels of pure alcohol from New York City to Genoa, Italy in 1872. The ship had a crew of 10, including the captains daughter and wife. A week after the Mary Celest took off, another ship, the Dei Gratia, left New York on the same path. This is where it gets freaky. As the Dei Gratia was making its way to Genoa, the crew noticed the Mary Celest floating in the water. They wondered why it wasn’t in Italy already, so they took a look. The captain boarded the boat, and no-one was there. The ship had a bit of water on the decks, but was was still operational. All the papers were missing, except for the captains log-book. The compass was broken, the clock was not functioning and only one lifeboat was missing. Doesn’t it just give you the creeps.
There are many theories about what happened to the ship. Some people think pirates took over their ship, yet there was absolutely no sign of struggle, and none of the cargo was missing. Nine of the barrels were empty, so some people think there was an explosion of some kind that caused water to rush the ship. Others think it was aliens, or tsunamis but not many people believe that. I think that pirates attacked, and the crew, knowing that they had no chance, didn’t put up a struggle. The pirates set up everything to make it look like they had nothing to do with it. What do you think?
