From Latin navis, a ship is a floating construction . The term is used, therefore, as a synonym for boat or ship . For example: "The ship will arrive at the port of Cabo Pedro within hours", "The wind made the ship turn around, throwing its five crew into the icy waters of the ocean", “My grandfather used to sit on the beach to watch the ships heading to the peninsula”.

Of this type of ships, which have to have properties such as stability or buoyancy as well as resistance, we can also highlight that they are made up of the following fundamental parts: deck, bow, stern, propeller, anchor or superstructure.

A aircraft or spacecraft On the other hand, it is a machine that has the necessary propulsion and steering means to navigate the outer space , with or without crew: “When I grow up I want to fly in a spaceship”, "NASA presented a new spacecraft that would make its first trip in 2020", "Russia works with China in the development of spacecraft".

Many spaceships still belong to the land of the Science fiction , since they require a technological development that has not yet been achieved. So far, the spacecraft manufactured by the man they have a rocket (which drives the vehicle) and the ship itself.

In the same way, the term spacecraft or flying saucer is also used to refer to the supposed vehicles that aliens use to reach Earth. Thus, in science fiction films it is common to see various types of ships such as those, which usually have round shapes, exit hatches or even a circular hoop that surrounds them.

Within the religious field, there is also a term that makes use of the word that concerns us now. Specifically, it is the nave of San Pedro, which is a "poetic" expression to refer to what the Catholic Church is.

Also, in this same field, we should highlight the existence of Noah's ship or Noah's ark, the vessel that, according to the Bible, this man built to protect living beings from the universal flood. His family and two specimens of each animal species were those that became passengers of that ship with the clear objective of later being able to repopulate the Earth.

On the other hand, we cannot forget the verbal phrase "burn the ships." This has its origin in a historical event, the destruction of ships by Hernán Cortés when he carried out the conquest of Mexico, and is used to express that it is necessary to make a sharp, drastic decision without regard.

For the architecture , the ships are the spaces that exist between the walls or the rows of arcades and that extend along important buildings such as religious temples. In the churches, the main craft It is the one that is in the center of the building from the entrance door makes the presbytery or the cruise.
