World Trade Center

Over ten years in the making, this is one of the most amazing time lapse videos I have ever seen.  Since this project has started there has been a combined effort of thousands to get the site where it is today.  I can not wait to visit and experience this memorial museum tonight.

Burj Khalifa Jump

Two men, after a year of training, decided to base jump from the top of the antenna on the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.  The Burj Khalifa stands at 2,722 ft high and is currently the tallest building in the world.  I was fortunate enough to get the chance to go to the top back in 2010 when it first opened and it is so tall that from the observation deck you can start to see the curvature of the earth! Both men are from France and when asked about the jump one said, "This is the dream, the highest building in the world." Check out the Buzzfeed article here and watch the video below.
