Oh yeah, I forgot. @Haxsys is a freaking ninja... Awesome pics though! I agree with the others, a little context would be grand.

You are kind of warm, in that the vehicle within the photo IS used to sort of smash things.


It is not a spaceship, but a TBM (tunnel boring machine)

Makes gigantic underground holes at insane speeds.


I would estimate that from front to back, the thing measures about 1/8th of a mile.

The thing is gigantic.


Tip for people exploring TBM’s:

At the very front of these machines, there is an airlock, that leads to a decompression chamber, that leads to a final airlock.


Do not fuck with these doors.


The amount of pressure behind them can be so high that opening one of these could release a shock wave that could potentially make your entire body disintegrate.

Ahh shit you misled me... this thread should be called inside the earth ship!

so those above you are electric hydraulic... whatever lines and behind you the drill bit...
Very good dude.

Yes you got forward about 100 yards, you hit the pressure chamber, and then beyond the last pressurized door is the drill bit!

Dude the engineering behind these things is unfathmobly complex.

It not only drills holes, but automatically drops concrete panels, leaving a perfectly assembled tunnel in its wake.


Fucking astonishing!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
