Woooooah Nellie!!

This looks pretty bad, doesn't it?

Is this ship about to capsize?

Actually, though, it's apparently a totally normal part of the life of a large ship.

I ran across a video on Facebook recently that showed ships being launched after repair or perhaps just after being built.

In every ship launch this video showed, the ship is launched sideways for some reason. The ship literally slides down a short ramp into the water, and as it enters the water it makes a huge splash and tilts to the side.

Sometimes the tilt to the side is so dramatic that it looks like the ship is going to capsize.

But just before anything bad happens, the ship starts to right itself, and in a few more moments all is well. The newly launched ship is sitting completely upright in the water, ready for action.
