The World’s Most Majestically Terrifying Skywalks

In 2007, a 70-foot-long pedestrian bridge was built out over the edge of the Grand Canyon. The glass beneath tourists’ feet was all that separated them from the Colorado river and the canyon floor, 720 feet below. This would, naturally, scare some, and, just as naturally, attract perhaps even more. The Grand Canyon skywalk was a hit and, since then, similar structures have been built all over the world. The most recent high-profile project–the 984-foot-long Haohan Qiao glass bridge in China’s Hunan Province–is perhaps the most audacious yet. See more of the world’s thrilling skywalks at Smithsonian.

The Danakil Depression Is The Closest Thing To Hell On Earth

For those who think hell is “real,” congratulations: Beelzebub’s lair does exist and can be found in Ethiopia — at least according to National Geographic.

Dubbed the “cruelest place on Earth” by the publication, the Danakil Depression sits deep below sea level (more than 100 meters below at some of its lowest points) in northern Ethiopia’s Afar region. Not only is the depression one of the hottest places on the planet, it’s also one of the most geologically active: the depression is essentially a molten, acidic, and bubbling expanse of land unlike anything else you’ve ever seen.
