These days, it cannot be denied that the world is embracing great technological innovations. Because of this, a lot of high-tech equipments are brought into existence, making the impossible things in the past possible. Engineering wonders have been engineered and invented. In relation to this, here are the top 10 engineering wonders the modern world has to offer:
10. Channel Tunnel
This is actually an underwater rail tunnel that measures 32 miles long. This is also called Channel. Channel is linking places of England and France, particularly Folkstone and Coquelles. This is a joint engineering project of France and England.
9. Bailong Elevator
When it comes to elevator, nothing can beat the Bailong elevator as far as weight and height are concerned. It’s primarily made from glass materials. This is built in a cliff that can be found in China, particularly in Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie.
8. The Large Hadron Collider
The modern physics has indebted a lot from this highest and largest particle-energy accelerator in the world. It can be found in an underground tunnel in Geneva, Switzerland that measures 574 feet long and 17 miles in circumference.
7. Chandra X-Ray Observatory
This great engineering wonder was launched on July 23, 1999 by NASA. This is actually an X-Ray telescope that is the most powerful in the world. The universe’s high energy regions are taken with x-ray images, which will be very helpful in the studies and researches of scientists, through the help of this engineering wonder.
This wide-field imaging facility can be found in the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy. This facility is very helpful in observing the immeasurable sky with the help of small-sized collection of mirrors together with a bigger-sized digital camera purposely assembled by great engineers. Pan-STARRS stands for Panoramic Survey Telescope & Rapid Response System.
5. Palm Islands
