El Queen Mary II

El Queen Mary II fue fabricado por la compañía Cunard, una de las navieras con más historia del mundo. Se fletó el 8 de Enero de 2004 y es el crucero de pasajaeros de estilo Ocean Liner más grande del mundo. El Queen Mary II es capaz de cruzar cualquier mar en linea recta , que es algo que no pueden hacer el resto de cruceros que no sean Ocean Liner, ya que no lo permiten el diseño de su casco.
De hecho para la construcción del Queen Mary II se uso un 40% de acero más para poder fabricar este tipo de casco.
El Queen Mary II viene a seguir la tradición de los grandes cruceros como fueron el Queen Mary y el Queen Elizabet II, este último, barco insignia de la naviera hasta la entrada en funcionamiento del Queen Mary II en 2004.
Su construcción se realizó en Saint Nazaire , en Francia, y se tardaron 3 años en completar el proyecto. Aproximadamente 20.000 personas estuvieron involucradas en las construcción de este proyecto, y fueron requeridas más de 8 millones de horas de trabajo para finalizarlo.

El Queen Mary II es realmente grande, mide exacatamente 345 m de largo y si lo pusieramos de pie sería más alto que la Torre Eiffel o que el Chrysler Building de Nueva York. De altura mide 71 metros y tiene 10 metros de calado, (precisamente por tener tanto calado no puede cruzar el canal de Panamá,ni amarrar en muchos de los puertos que visita).

Desplaza 150.000 toneladas,puede albergar 4.000 personas ( 1.253 de Tripulación y 2.620 de pasajeros) y como detalle curioso las hélices con las que se impulsa son de tal calidad sus rodamientos que las podría mover una persona haciendo fuerza con un dedo.

Actualmente solo hay un crucero más grande que el Queen Mary que es el Freedom of the Seas con capacidad para 3.500 pasajeros, aunque no es un Ocean Liner.
Aún asi , ya se ha proyectado otro enorme barco de pasajeros, el Proyecto Génesis que verá la luz en 2009 y batirá todos los récords de cifras, ya que podrá albergar a 5.400 pasajeros, el doble que el Queen Mary.

Make a list of your nutrition chart involving juice and fruits at the top followed by green vegetables
and milk products. Then you'll have no trouble motivating yourself to do it. Stretching will help you prevent injuries and it will help you loosen up your muscles.

Information that informs the public and makes them good citizens is
the kind of quality information that one can be proud to call news, and if it ever goes completely out of style, may the Lord help us,
for it will be the end of civilization as we know it.

A person needs to have an active internet connection to be able to access
all the headlines and information on internet.
It's more than just doing the right things or being involved in a good opportunity.

With so much of hype with new seasons being released, this game is awarded
"the largest mobile app success the world has seen so far" and also considered as "one of the greatest runaway hits of 2010".
But what market is more likely to upgrade after each new generation is
released. You can either make one of these for yourself
or make all the characters for your friends and
you can all go as a group in an Angry birds costume.

Early farmers often found that hybrid strains of animals and plants often possessed more favourable characteristics.
The gels went through a trypsin digestion and then were analyzed by a MALDI-TOF-TOF mass
spectrometer, which identified the proteins digested from the gels.
This film has many familiar faces such as John Lithgow, Brian Cox and Tom
Felton (Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) but again
we are shown just how advanced CGI is now -especially when combined with the acting
talents of Andy Serkis- and it's easy to forget that Caesar isn't real.
