An evening pause: A different kind of bridge, located in Russia and one that I wouldn’t speed across. Built originally as a railroad bridge to cross the Vitim River, it is 1870 feet long and about 50 feet above the water. Note how many of the cross planks are not attached.

This is a Perfect example of what happens to solid ideas that become Politically Controlled. this project probably went ” over budget”. vote the bastards out and let scientists and engineers do the science we need in order to further mankind.
