Sea of Thieves, but never before has he seen one turn into a rocket ship – until now. 

The popular streamer had been playing Apex Legends throughout the course of February, but now he seems to be back to his old tricks – stealing prized Athena Chests from other crews across the seven seas. 

Summit might have built a reputation for hilariously stealing loot right from under the nose of others, but after sinking a Skeleton Ship to a point where it looked ready to be looted with ease… Little did he know that a very unexpected surprise was waiting to happen. 

Microsoft StudiosSummit1g is a master of stealing loot and bamboozling players in Sea of Thieves.

This type of Galleon can be seen dotted around the Sea of Thieves map, giving online players an opportunity to battle against a pirate crew and take their loot away from them. 

After taking out all of the skeletons and hitting the boat with a bunch of cannonballs, it started to sink. With nobody left on board, Summit’s team spun their ship into a better position and prepared to plunder the vessel in the hopes of some incredible treasure. 

However, the closer that they got, the more they started to realized that this particular Skeleton Ship wasn’t about to sit around and wait for them to loot it. 

“Where’s that ship going?” a teammate said, before it left the group of players stunned and took soared high into the air like a rocket. 

It all happened so quickly that Summit actually missed what had just happened. “Did it just fly?” Summit said. “What happened? I took my eyes off it for one second. “

As the ship was “in orbit” – as the team put it – they hoped that the game would have leave behind the loot for their troubles. Unfortunately for them, there weren’t any chests to be claimed in the water. 

Microsoft Studios / RAREYou just never know when a Skeleton Ship is going to appear in Sea of Thieves.

This is not the first bug that Summit1g and his teammates have experienced with Skeleton Ships in Sea of Thieves. The former CS:GO streamer once landed on top of one and destroyed it without firing a single shot, as it completely disappeared. 

Even then, the loot stayed behind. Not this time, though.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
