Banpo Bridge, Korea - Banpodaegyo Bridge is most famous for the Banpo Bridge Rainbow Fountain which runs along 570 metres of its length on both sides. Devil’s bridge, Germany - Known as Rakotzbrücke, this stunning stone bridge was commissioned by a knight in 1860. Moses Bridge - The West Brabant Line is dotted with 17th century forts and many were surrounded by moats which were deep enough to protect from marauders but too shallow for boat travel. Rolling Bridge, England - At Paddington Basin in London, this 12 metre bridge connects low-lying paths without encumbering river access to the surrounding buildings and offices. Designed by the prolific Thomas Heatherwick, this bridge unfurls via the use of concealed hydraulic pumps. Slauerhoffbrug, Netherlands - Another rather extraordinary example of a moving bridge, this bridge in the Netherlands nicknamed by some as the ‘terminator bridge’ or ‘flying drawbridge’ actually retracts a whole section of road in order to let river traffic through. It does this as many as 10 times a day. The Millau Viaduct, France - This amazing bridge is widely considered to be one of the world’s finest and it was the world’s tallest bridge with a high point of almost 350 metres above the ground until China’s Duge bridge seized that accolade in 2016. Ponte Vecchio, Italy - This gorgeous historical bridge in Florence is noteworthy because of the shops built into its stoney construction. This bridge actually first appears in a document dated to 996. Akashi-Kaikyo, Japan - This extremely beautiful bridge situated near Kobe, Japan, is the world’s longest suspension bridge with a total length of 3,911 metres. Golden Gate Bridge, USA - The Golden Gate Bridge is an internationally recognized symbol of the USA and is one of the country’s most important architectural works. Multnomah falls bridge - You only have to glance at this bridge to see that it’s a bit special. Duge BridgeChina - In this modern era of bridge building, huge and mightily tall bridges are possible to build with what seem like next-to-no supports. Siberian Bridge, Russia - Trift Suspension Bridge, Switzerland - Overlooking spectacular views of the Swiss Alps is this pedestrian-only suspension bridge. Living root bridges, India - Cherrapunji in Northeastern India is one of the wettest places on Earth and hosts an extraordinary tree named the Ficus elastica. Magdeburg Water Bridge, Germany - Jiangzhou Immortal Bridge, China - Natural arches are the bridges of nature and some of these awesome rock formations have existed for several millennia. LEGO Bridge, Germany - This quirky bridge is fortunately not created from actual giant plastic lego bricks but is instead a concrete bridge painted by street artist Martin Heuwold.

From Chandra X-Ray Space Telescope to Hong Kong International Airport here are 12 of the World’s Most Insane Engineering Marvels. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 6. Chandra X-Ray Space Telescope Along with the Hubble Space Telescope Chandra is one of NASA’s most advanced space observatories. Chandra has advanced astronomers knowledge of stars, galaxies, black holes and the origin of life inducing elements. It was appropriately and fittingly named after Indian-American astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, whose work on black holes earned him a Nobel Prize in physics in 1983. Originally launched in 1999 the observatories longevity and scientific value has made it one of NASA’s most successful missions. In 2014 Chandra observed the awe-inspiring Tycho supernova remnant, which was created by the explosion of a white dwarf star. 5. Shasta Dam Stretching mightily across the Sacramento River in Northern California construction of the Shasta Dam took place from 1938 to 1945. Once completed it would back up water for over 35 miles to form Shasta Lake, California’s largest reservoir and a place that is visited by millions of vacationers annually. Frank Crowe, who had just helped finish the Hoover Dam oversaw the entire project, which included 4,700 workers building what was the second largest concrete dam in the country. Twelve million tons of gravel was needed for the project. Luckily a substantial supply was located in the nearby city of Redding. To transport this large quantity of gravel the world’s longest conveyor belt was constructed. It was 9.6 miles long and operated 24/7 for several years. 4. Millau Viaduct Soaring high above the clouds, the world was captivated by the Millau Viaduct when it opened in December 2004. The idea that the viaduct only took three years to build is almost as astounding as the bridge itself. Towers on the incredible structure rise to a height of one thousand one hundred and twenty-five feet, making it the tallest bridge in the world. Seven pillars weighing 700 tons each were built for the project that had to be placed in exactly the right place for the bridge to be a success. Multiple satellite signals were used to help pinpoint the right spots for the pillars to be placed. Bridge specialist Michel Virlogeux and renowned British architect Norman Foster were employed to design the Millau Viaduct which is widely regarded as an engineering marvel that has no equal. 3. Hubble Space Telescope Anytime you hear news about a new distant star or planet found in outer space it was likely discovered with the use of the Hubble Space Telescope, which has rested in low Earth orbit since 1990. It's named after Edwin Hubble, who took the largest telescopes of his day to the Mt. Wilson Observatory near Pasadena, California and discovered countless unknown planets and galaxies in the 1920’s. Experts have published over fourteen thousand scientific papers using data from the space telescope, making it one of the most productive instruments of science in history. At launch, it weighed twenty-four thousand pounds, and today it is twenty-seven thousand pounds and 43.5 feet long. 2. Hong Kong International Airport Though the Kansai International Airport in Japan was the first to be entirely built on an artificial island when it opened in 1994, it lies on soft land that has been sinking much more quickly than anticipated, ultimately making the project a potentially colossal failure. The Hong Kong International Airport went a lot better. The project took six years and around twenty billion dollars to build making it one of the biggest projects in the aviation industry. It lies on Chek Lap Kok, an island that is mostly made of land reclaimed for the construction of the airport. The 24-hour airport is one of the busiest in the world and holds one of the Earth’s largest passenger terminal buildings 1. ISS The International Space Station is not only the largest human-made object in orbit, but it also represents a collaboration of nations around the world. Five space agencies (NASA, Russia’s Roscosmos (ross cosmos), the European Space Agency, The Canadian Space Agency and the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency) representing fifteen countries were involved in constructing the one hundred billion dollar station. The structure was taken and built piece by piece in orbit and has been continuously occupied since November 2, 2000. Current plans call for ISS to be in operation until 2024, by which time some of its first components will be nearly three decades old.
Some people may believe that the whole earth has been explored by now. There are in fact still places on earth that remain unexplored.

Vale Do Javari, Brazil - This next one refers to a place that no modern, civilized human has ever set foot. The Mariana Trench - The Mariana Trench is the deepest point in the entire ocean. Gangkhar Puensum - Gangkhar Puensum, meaning "White Peak of the Three Spiritual Brothers", is the highest unclimbed mountain in the world, and the fortieth highest mountain overall. Star Mountains - The Star Mountains are an enormous mountain range in Papa New Guinea that stretches all the way from the country’s border with Indonesia to the Hindenburg Range – a neighboring mountain range with a less cool name. Yucatan Cenotes - The Yucatan Cenotes are a large cave network located in Mexico.A ‘cenote’ is a particular type of cave that is formed when limestone bedrock collapses. Tsingy De Bemaraha National Park - Tsingy De Bemaraha National Park is located on the western edge of Madagascar. Greenland - Despite being, you know, a country, there are large parts of Greenland that are unexplored. The Namib Desert - You may want to bring at least one water bottle if you decide to go explore the Namib desert, as the region, one of the most arid in the world, gets only two millimeters of rain on average every year. North Sentinel Island - North Sentinel Island tops this list because, of all these places, it is the one I would most strongly advice against visiting.
