Video: Building a floating city also known as an aircraft carrier is hard as hell to do because the numbers are basically unfathomable. A basic aircraft carrier is made of 60,000 tonnes of steel, 4.5 acres of non-skid surface with four 100m catapults. The whole thing weighs 90.7 million kilograms and takes five years to build and - get this - costs $US5 billion ($6.5 billion) at the very least. It's a massive undertaking. Science Channel gives a brief overview on the construction process of an aircraft carrier.

But hey, if you have $6.5 billion lying around, this video is a good start.
