Being a country with over a billion population, transport and utility systems would be in a massive scale like no other country ever experienced. These are China's mega-projects with world records.

That also automatically makes it the largest hydroelectric power station on the planet—with maximum output capacity of 22,500 MW from 34 giant turbines. It took nine years long of construction with a staggering 27.6 billion USD, replacing Itaipú Dam that sits in the second place.

Believe it or not, this 164.8 km (102.4 mi) viaduct is part of world's longest HSR line—Beijing-Shanghai Line in which three long bridges along this line listed in the 10 longest bridges in the world. Viaducts are common for high-speed train for a smooth ride on uneven terrain.

Currently, China has over 20,000 km (12,000 mi) of high-speed rail route with projection of 38,000 km (23,600 mi) by 2025. Over 1.1 billion ridership registered in 2015 alone.

Listed as the fastest supercomputer on the planet by top500.org since June 2016 at 93 petaflops based on LINPACK benchmark, replacing Tianhe-2, another China's supercomputer. Even astonishing when Sunway TaihuLight 100% relying on homegrown technology especially its CPU. CC-BY: by FU Haohuan et. al, https://goo.gl/p71Bjp Highest Bridge: Sidu River Bridge. This is the world's highest bridge by a maximum vertical drop distance from deck which is about 496 m (1,627 ft). Commissioned in November 2009 with construction cost of 720 million Yuan. Located in southern part of China with plenty of deep gorges and steep hills, many similar rails and highway bridges were highly ranked in this category.

Commissioned in 2010 after 5 years of construction, it is longer only by 3.3 km (2 mi) of that newly opened Gotthard Base Tunnel in second place. However there are longer tunnels but most of them function as water transfer. CC-BY: by 柯宏韜, https://goo.gl/NRYFdF Largest Building by Floor Area: New Century Global Center. Located in Chengdu, sixth largest city in China, this multipurpose building has a floor area of 1.7 million square meters (18 mil sq ft). Most of floor dedicated for retails, however its also offers houses offices, conference rooms, a university complex, two commercial centers, hotels, even water theme park at top of building. Largest Aperture-filled Telescope: Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST). As its name tells, it has dish with diameter of 500 meter (1,640 ft) made of 4450 triangular panels with 11 meters on each side, in the form of geodesic dome. Begin testing in September 2016, but this radio telescope would be expected to be underutilized due to lack of experts in the area. Fastest Commercial Operating Train: Shanghai Maglev Train. Transrapid finally made its first commercial usage of magnetic levitation train as an airport metro ferrying passengers between Longyang Road Station and Pudong international Airport on 30.5 km (19 mi) rail long route. Maximum operating speed is about 431 km/h (268 mph) although its absolute maximum is about 501 km/h (311 mph).

It's a multi-decade running project mega-project since Mao Zedong era aim to deliver 44.8 billion cubic meter of fresh water per year from south to more arid and industrialized northern region such as Beijing, Tianjin and Weihai.

Lake Oroville and Oroville Dam in Butte County are part of the State Water Project and an important source of water for Southern California. The Metropolitan Water District is the largest of the state water contractors and imports about 30% of the Southland's water supplies from Northern California. Oroville's main spillway suffered severe damage in early February when flood control releases from the lake eroded sections of the concrete channel. Watch a timeline of the events as they unfolded.

Update: Plaintiff's Depositions are scheduled for October 18, 2018. Link to 1st followup video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Szsn8JFmkU Link to 2nd followup video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66CRZzLGfNI Link to 3rd followup video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUi7lcPELYg A lawsuit has been filed against Wayne County, and the state of New York. As of July 14, 2018, it is still working its way through the slow legal system, with government lawyers dragging things out as long as possible. We will update when possible. Here are a couple court documents: http://sharkonline.org/images/Documents/nystatecomplaint.pdf http://sharkonline.org/images/Documents/nywaynecocomplaint.pdf Depositions scheduled for May, 2018 were put off because the government claimed it couldn't read our video files. Interesting, as everyone else including our lawyers can read them... The SHARK team appreciates those commenters who have a grasp of the US Constitution, and the vital rights it bestows on our citizens. Brave Americans have died to preserve and defend these rights, and it is tragic that so many people are not only unaware of their rights, but moreover are willing to give them up, and even insist that others do the same. The Constitution gives Americans the opportunity to stand, but standing requires a spine - something quite a number of people lack today. We will continue to stand strong with other proud Americans. November 13, 2016, a SHARK team uses an Angel drone to get an aerial view of Marshall Farms, a company in North Rose, New York that raises beagles, ferrets and other animals for research. Although absolutely no laws were broken, police made an illegal traffic stop that lasted more than an hour. The bullying and incompetence is hard to believe. Per the ACLU: Police may stop and briefly detain you only if there is reasonable suspicion that you committed, are committing or are about to commit a crime. The police lost their credibility, their dignity, and any legitimacy by selling out to a company that sells animals for research. Shame on the New York State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff's Department. We are in the process of reviewing our legal options, and will provide updates as decisions are made. Please email both law enforcement agencies about how their officers acted. Please be polite, and please let us know if you get a response: New York State Police: FIELDCMD@troopers.ny.gov IAFFAIRS@troopers.ny.gov Wayne County Sheriff: Sheriff Barry Virts firstname.lastname@example.org SHARK has set up a "Go Fund Me" Account to help with our travel and legal expenses.

While we very much appreciate the supportive comments many people have left, we ask you to consider that threats against police officers is not the way to go. While SHARK will stand against bad cops, we do not wish them harm - we only wish to get rid of the bad cops, so the good police can do their jobs. Harming others is what we are trying to end, so let's not threaten even those with whom we very much disagree. We certainly understand the emotion, having seen so much corruption firsthand, but violence is not the answer.
