Cor­ri­dor on a cliff

Focus-Science and Technology - - Q & A -

Perched on China’s Fuxi Moun­tain in Xinmi, He­nan Province, is this U- shaped glass sky­walk. By peer­ing through the trans­par­ent floor, vis­i­tors can en­joy dizzy­ing views of the val­ley bot­tom, lo­cated a whop­ping 360 me­tres be­neath their feet. In re­cent years, China has de­vel­oped some­thing of a rep­u­ta­tion for build­ing ter­ri­fy­ing glass bridges that ap­peal to dare­devil tourists, and is boast­ing this lat­est one is a record­breaker. In­cred­i­bly, Guin­ness World Records re­ceives 2,000 ap­pli­ca­tions from China a year, so it re­mains to be seen if this one earns a cov­eted place in the book.
