Most Dangerous Rope Bridge In The World – Hussaini Hanging Bridge

The Hussaini-Borit Lake Bridge is considered to be one of the most dangerous in the world as it is very old, narrow, extremely high above the lake and to top it all off, wooden planks are missing.

The local people of Pakistan use several suspension bridges to cross rivers in and around northern Pakistan. Among these, the Borit lake bridge is well known around the globe for being the most dangerous and thrilling rope bridge.

Windmill turbine explosion

The braking mechanism that limits the speed of the wind turbine broke during a storm in Denmark in 2008. This was the outcome. The tower of the mill was 60m high, the wind speed was probably around 30 m/s and you can see a truck at the base of the mill, but nobody was hurt. The mill had been evacuated 400m in each direction.

Solar "Death Ray": Power of 5000 suns!

Made from an ordinary fiberglass satellite dish, it is covered in about 5800 3/8" (~1cm) mirror tiles. When properly aligned, it can generate a spot the size of a dime with an intensity of 5000 times normal daylight. This intensity of light is more than enough to melt steel, vaporize aluminum, boil concrete, turn dirt into lava, and obliterate any organic material in an instant. It stands at 5'9" and is 42" across.
Unfortunately, the R5800 was completely destroyed in a storage shed fire on December 14, 2010.
