Pretty Cool !

Even after you see it, it is still hard to believe!
Water Bridge in Germany . What a feat!

West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of


Magdeburg, near Berlin . The photo was taken on the day of inauguration.


To those who appreciate engineering projects, here's a puzzle for you armchair
engineers and physicists.


Did that bridge have to be designed to withstand the additional weight of ship
and barge traffic, or just the weight of the water?
