FLIP: The Only Ship That Stays Afloat Vertically or HorizontallyS

It may look like it's capsizing, but the FLIP (Floating Instrument Platform) is the only vessel out there that can operate both horizontally and vertically. It was designed to "flip" at sea so that scientists can better study the ocean. What I think is especially cool is that the insides of the ship (the crew quarters) were made in a way that you can get around regardless of what position the ship is in. I'd just hate to be anywhere near the bathroom when that thing flips. Check out the video post jump.
