      A robot ship will sail across the Atlantic
      Mayflower – the so-called merchant ship on which the British, who founded one of the first British settlements in North America, crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1620. They set off on a journey from Plymouth, according to historians, on September 16.

A robot ship will sail across the Atlantic

After 400 years, in September 2020, Mayflower will again depart from Plymouth via the Atlantic. More specifically, the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) is a 100-foot robot ship that crosses the ocean in fully automatic mode, will use the energy of the Sun and wind and will carry out a significant amount of research work along the way. MAS will also finish in Plymouth, but already in the US – in the state of Massachusetts.

Work on the project has been going on for several years, it was initiated by students and teachers of Plymouth University (UK), which was joined by groups of scientists, engineers and designers from Europe and America.

A few days ago, at the Aluship plant in Gdansk (Poland), they began to cut an aluminum sheet, which will become the hull of a robot ship (this is the moment captured in the second picture). It turns out, from theory to practice. The tale becomes true!
