Freedomship is an enormous floating city that will be a monument to engineering skill and ingenuity. It will serve as a vacation resort or even a home for people with enough money. Although still in the pre-construction phase of the project, the Web site offers a good deal of information about the ship's design. It will be almost a mile long and rise 25 stories above the water. The ship will accommodate around 40,000 visitors who can arrive by boat or plane (yes, there will even be a small airport on the top deck). When Freedomship is not moving, it will sit offshore near major cities and other popular tourist destinations. The Web site provides several artist renderings that tantalize the imagination. Freedomship will be featured on Engineering the Impossible on the Discovery Channel February 25th, 2002.
