"Langsam umrundeten sie das gigantische weiße Schiff: seine elegant gewölbte, 146 Meter weite, scheibenförmige Primärhülle, die geschweifte, an einen Schiffssteven erinnernde Verbindungs- „Finne“ zur langgestreckten zigarrenförmigen Sekundär- oder Maschinenhülle, und die beiden 155 Meter langen, je 31 000 Tonnen schweren Haupttriebwerksgondeln an ihren schräggestellten, 60 Meter langen Auslegern. Die Länge des gesamten Schiffes maß 305 Meter, sein Gewicht betrug 190 000 Tonnen."
Gradually they surrounded the huge white ship: its elegantly arched, 146 meters wide, Disc primary shell, the curved, like a Schiffssteven Connection Finn secondary to elongated cigar-hull or machinery, and the two 155 meters long, each 31 000-ton main engine nacelles allocated to their slanted, 60 meters long outriggers. The entire length of the ship measured 305 meters, its weight was 190 000 tons.

it's time to stop believing in bronze-age scribblings!
The world never ever was flat, no matter how many believed it."
