China has a plan to launch a new project an “Artificial Moon” that will light up the skies as far as 50 miles around. The artificial Moon will be eight times brighter and stronger than real Moon. It will be realized in 2010 in the southwestern city of Chengdu.
In China it has been opened the tallest and longest glass bridge of all over the World. The longest glass bridge has a name “Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge”, which is built for tourist’s attraction. Besides being the tallest and longest, it is also considered one of the most horror bridges. The longest glass bridge is transparent which is made of glasses.
When Did the Bridge Open?
Zhangjiajie Glass Bridge opened on August 20, 2016. It has the length of 430 meters, 6 meters in breadth, and is suspended about 260 metres above the ground.
How Many People May Walk Along the Bridge?
It is designed to carry up to 800 visitors at a time. The bridge spans the canyon between two mountain cliffs in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in China’s central Hunan province. To build the bridge, engineers erected 4 support pillars on the edges of the walls of the canyon. It is made of a steel frame with more than 120 glass panels. Each of these panels is 3-layered and is a 2-inch-thick slab of tempered glass. There are 3 long swings attached to the underside of the bridge. Also there is a provision for making a 265-meter bungee-jump. This is considered to be highest such jump in the world.
According to the data of Wikipedia the bridge was designed by Israeli architect Haim Dotan.
“On September 2, 2016, just 13 days after the bridge was opened, the authorities put out a notice saying that they are closing the bridge due to overwhelming visitor traffic. The bridge, designed to hold 800 people at a time and expected to be visited by about 8,000 people per day, had reportedly attracted more than 80,000 visitors per day. The authorities said that the government decided to suspend operations due to the “urgency to improve and update” the attraction, including its car parks, ticket-booking system, and customer service. The bridge reopened on September 30, 2016”, mentions Wikipedia.
