Poornachandran saves NASA shipwreck in Suez Canal

The moon, a satellite of the Earth, is reported to be behind the removal of the cargo ship that caused the Suez Canal crisis. The report was released by international media quoting NASA. According to the report, the ship was removed from the canal with the help of the full moon in March.

There are 12-13 full moons in a year. Of these, six to eight full moons cause tides. The epicenter was reported below the Pacific Ocean floor, however; no tsunami alert was issued. Due to the full moon, the waves were 18 inches (46 cm) higher then. According to reports, the surge was facilitated by the rising tide.

CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said the tide was rising when the moon was closest to Earth. He added that it was not uncommon for the waves to rise in height during high tide and that there was no doubt that these waves helped in the rescue mission. March was one of the four brightest super moons of the year.

On March 23, the 400-meter-long ship Ever Given sank in the Suez Canal. Then the freight traffic through the canal came to a complete standstill. The ship was removed at the end of a six-day mission.
