Dutchman launches life-sized replica of Noah’s Ark
A full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark has opened its doors to the public in the Netherlands. Stormy weather Monday could do nothing to dampen the good mood of its creator, Dutchman Johan Huibers. In fact, the rain was appropriate.
Johan interpreted the description given in Genesis to build his ark. It measures in at a whopping 130 metres (427 feet) long, 29 metres (95 feet) across and 23 metres (75 feet) high. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
