Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland

The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water


What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?

Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?

Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.

Engineers are magicians.
