Please wait while one of the largest mobile machines in the world crosses the road. The machine pictured above is a bucket-wheel excavator used in modern surface mining. Machines like this have given humanity the ability to mine minerals and change the face of planet Earth in new and dramatic ways. Some open pit mines, for example, are visible from orbit. The largest excavators are over 200 meters long and 100 meters high, now dwarfing the huge NASA Crawler that transports space shuttles to the
Krupp coal miner
This is a bucket-wheel excavator, one of the largest mobile machines in the world and is used in surface mining. It can dig a hole the length of a football field 25 meters deep in one day. Imagine what it is doing to the surface of Earth. Unfortunatly we have many of these in our area digging for coal. Villages, rivers and highways get torn down and relocated just so that Germany can be more independend from electricity/oil from other states. We are one of the leading countries with Renewable Energies - but still not enough!!!
