Why does it take billionaires to come up with this idea? Why didn't the gov think of stuff like this when going to the moon?

Billionaires are bored and open to new ideas. Governments are paranoid and look to shut down new ideas.

Hoover Dam Bypass Bridge

Quote
It was amazing all the Engineering and planning that went into building this bridge, especially the continuous slip form pouring of the arch from both sides to meet in the middle; out in the middle of nowhere in 120 plus degree summer heat in the river valley.

They injected liquid Nitrogen into each load of concrete to keep the pouring temperature at 80 degrees or less. to keep it from drying too fast in the extreme heat and cracking. It was all extremely interesting. I hope you enjoy the pictures taken during construction. It's hard to believe.

Truly geeky stuff here. But check out the middle of the video of sodium acetate portion. Never seen that before.

This looks gnarly.

I subscribe to Revision TV, but for whatever reason, Joe Genius is not one of the channels I get. It should be, but it's not. Bah!

You should also post this video in your Weekend thread for those that stumble across it by accident so they can see where your going with thoughts about your project is concerned. Just sayin'.
