The Empire State Building in Manhattan New York, 381.0 m (1,250 ft), 102 floors tallest in the world from 1931 to 1970 has since been eclipsed by a few others but now totally dwarfed by Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest in the world at 828 m (2,717 ft), 154 floors.
But that really is not Burj Khalifa’s amazing story. The amazing story is one that this video tells
An eagle, with a camera installed on its back, was released from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, now the world’s tallest building, in order to search for his trainer, who was exactly ten blocks from the building. When the eagle spotted his coach, it plunged downwards for about a minute and a half and then landed on his arm. Not only can you see some beautiful images of the city (and the curvature of the earth), but also you can get an idea of how highly developed eagles’ hunting skills must be. A remarkable video, isnt it?
Thank me tomorrow if you too, like me, are amazed.
