The Glass Bridge

Did you see yourself standing on the Glass Bridge?  This bridge was built nearly 1,000 feet above the Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon in China and is the longest and highest glass bridge in the world.  Take a look at this Site for some awesome photos.  It was opened recently (August 2016)  and closed soon after for a brief period for upgrades due to the higher than expected number of visitors.  The bridge can take 8,000 visitors a day and up to 800 people on it at a time.

A broken glass pane on one of the other glass bridges led to fear of the safety of the bridge so when this bridge opened they demonstrated its safety by having people try to break it with a sledge hammer and by having a car load of people drive across it.   Each of the transparent sections has 3 panels and the glass is two-inch thick tempered glass.

This is a beautiful Video of the bridge.  There is a plan for several swings and a bungee jump from the bridge.  Would you be willing to jump from the bridge in a bungee jump?

(I give measurements in this description in “Feet” but nearly every other country uses the METRIC system so they describe the length and height in Meters.  There are 3 feet and 3 inches in a meter.)
