IT'S THE SHIP THAT FLIPS.
FLIPPIN' heck! This vessel may look like it's in trouble - but there's no need to abandon ship.
In fact, this Floating Instrument Platform (FLIP) is the only vessel in the world that can operate both horizontally and vertically at sea, to make it easier to study the ocean. The ship is the creation of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Scripps Institution of Oceanography: see California, Univ. of. at the University of California The University of California has a combined student body of more than 191,000 students, over 1,340,000 living alumni, and a combined systemwide and campus endowment of just over $7.3 billion (8th largest in the United States). .
The insides, including the crew quarters, are designed in such a way that they can be used whatever position the ship is in. Probably best not to be in the bathroom when it flips, though...
OUT FOR A SPIN: The ship takes a turn for the spectacular so that it can operate vertically WENN
