The Forest of Knives

The Forest of Knives is located in the Madagascar wilderness. It was found during the 21st century since people do not often explore this area. It is a forest of pointed rocks. Experts confirm the limestone rocks broke due to salty rainwater. This apparently made the rocks very sharp.

Humans are great builders. Examples are all over the world. The Egyptian pyramids, the Panama Canal, and the Alaska Pipeline are just a few. Thousands of people worked on these enormous structures. What makes these structures such amazing achievements? Is it their size? Is it their beauty? Is it the number of workers? Is it the danger of the work?

egyptian pyramids
Egyptian Pyramids

The ancient pyramids of Egypt are still a mystery today. No one knows exactly how the Egyptians built them. The biggest pyramid is the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Egyptians built it in about 2550 BCE. The workers used 2.5 million limestone blocks. The Great Pyramids cover 123 acres. It is 480 feet high. The sides are 755 feet long.

How did the workers build the Great Pyramid? There were no wheels at the time, so there were no cranes or pulleys. Experts think the builders used simple machines, such as levers and ramps. The Great Pyramid took over 80 years to build. Approximately 30,000 people worked on it.

panama canal
Panama Canal

What was the most dangerous engineering project? It was the the Panama Canal. This waterway in Central America is 50 miles long. It lets ships pass between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The French started the project in 1881. However, the work was too difficult, and they stopped. The United States continued the project in 1904 and completed it in 1941. A total of 56,307 people worked on the canal.

The area around the canal was very dangerous. It had a tropical climate. That means it was very hot and wet, with about 105 inches of rain a year. The heavy rain often flooded the rivers. There were mosquitoes. No one knew that mosquitoes caused malaria. Thousands of workers died from malaria and accidents.

alaska pipeline
Alaska Pipeline

One of the greatest engineering achievements of the twentieth century was the Alaska Pipeline. In 1968, an oil company found the largest oil field in North America. How could they get oil from Alaska to the rest of the United States? They worked with other oil companies to build a pipeline.

The Alaska Pipeline is the longest pipeline in the world. It carries oil for 800 miles through the cold, hard Alaskan wilderness. It crosses three mountain ranges and more than 800 rivers and streams. More than 70,000 workers built it. They worked for nine years in the sub-zero temperatures. They completed the work in 1977. Since then, over 15 billion barrels of oil have traveled through the pipeline.

Amazing Achievements

There are many amazing engineering projects around the world. For example, the Great Wall of China was the largest building project in history. The Great Wall is approximately 4,500 miles long. Another example is the Pan-American Highway. It is about 20,300 miles, and it is the longest road in the world. It goes through Canada, the United States, Mexico, Central America, and South America.

plagiarism
Plagiarism

Plagiarism is no laughing matter. Plagiarism is a form of cheating or stealing. When you use someone else\'s ideas, words, phrases, paragraphs, or works without giving that person credit, that\'s plagiarism. For example, let\'s say that you\'re writing a paper about the author Charles Dickens, and you find great information in an article about his novels. If you take the ideas in that article, or copy any part of that article (even a few words) without indicating where you got this from (in effect, passing them off as your own), that\'s plagiarism. The penalties for plagiarism can be severe, including course failure and suspension. The bottom line - if you didn\'t think it up, create it, or write it all by yourself, you must indicate where you got it from.
