SUPER BRIDGE.

wow-bridge

Yeah – how the fuck is that possible right??

Isn’t it just the neatest thing you’ve ever seen?

The Siduhe Grand Bridge has been in construction for over 4 years and stands 2,132 feet above the ground below. The bridge is 3,200 feet across.
Simple way to make a bridge when the ground is ridiculously far below? Attach em bitch cables to ROCKETS! YEAH!

Follow the Jump to See pictures with more explanation!!

“so you’ve erected the enormous towers on each side of the deep valley, deeper than any valley previously bridged. how do you get a pilot cable from one tower to the next? previous solutions have included: attaching the cable to a kite and flying it over (e.g. Niagara falls suspension bridge), carrying one end by helicopter (e.g. akashi kaikyo bridge) and floating one end on a boat (e.g. Brooklyn bridge). the brains behind the siduhe bridge decided to ignore all those options and break another record instead. they attached the 3200ft cables to rockets and accurately fired them over the valley, becoming the first people to do so.”

God damn thats awesome.
