Yes, This Cruise Ship Is Perched On A Cliff, Is Real, Is Going Nowhere

Here’s a brainteaser: How does a massive cruise ship end up on top of a cliff? Natural causes—a tsunami, maybe? In 2011, the 9.0 magnitude Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami did pick up and drop ships across different inland locations.

Perhaps it was placed there strategically by engineers and scientists? In 2014, the beached Costa Concordia was floated and towed away from its crash site.

The truth is that neither natural causes nor magic tricks put this vessel where it’s rested for over 14 years. Read on to learn more about the story behind this South Korean ship-on-a-cliff.
