Freak 81ft Ocean Waves Seen from Space

Paging Jules Verne:

As part of a project called MaxWave – which was set up to test the rumours – two Esa satellites surveyed the oceans. During a three week period they detected 10 giant waves, all of which were over 25m (81ft) high. Over the last two decades more than 200 super-carriers – cargo ships over 200m long – have been lost at sea. Eyewitness reports suggest many were sunk by high and violent walls of water that rose up out of calm seas.
