Palm Islands are three artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali, on the coast of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. They are so beautifully made that it seems as i someone carved a piece o art on the water!
Large Hadron Collider
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, the most complex experimental facility ever built, and the largest single machine in the world. It is mammoth in nature!
The Falkirk Wheel is a rotating boat lift in Scotland, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. An architectural marvel in true sense!
The Panama Canal is an artificial 77 km waterway in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean. One of the best man made structures ever!
The Channel Tunnel
The channel tunnel is a 50.45-kilometre (31.35 mi) rail tunnel linking Folkestone, Kent, in the United Kingdom, with Coquelles, Pas-de-Calais, near Calais in northern France, beneath the English Channel at the Strait of Dover.
Shasta Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam across the Sacramento River in Northern California in the United States. Extremely beautiful, isn't it?
The Millau Viaduct is a cable-stayed bridge that spans the gorge valley of the River Tarn near Millau in southern France. It is the tallest bridge in the world!
The Hubble Space Telescope
The Hubble Space Telescope is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990 and remains in operation. Something that all of us can be really proud of.
The International Space Station is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth orbit. You look at it and you know it is brilliant.
