The Largest Wind Tunnel In The World

Below is a picture of the world's largest wind tunnel of 80x120 feet (24 x27 meters). It was built in 1940 to test a large scale model aircraft owned by United States Air Force.The area around the air tunnel is guarded. From the second world war until now onlyAmericans allowed to enter the compound. For the wind to generate great fan 6 is used, each driven by the engine to 22 500 horsepower! At full power of 100megawatts, the wind speed of 190 killometre per hour can be generated. To ensure that the sound produced when air tunnel used does not interfere with nearby residents,the body building foam silencer installed the thickness between 8-12 feet. Among the military and NASA programs that have used the air tunnel is a space shuttle, the F-18, F-117 and X-15. Air tunnel is actually large enough to load a 737 aircraft.
This is why United States have a lot of new technology.

Kingdom Tower In Jeddah











Kingdom Tower , previously known as Mile-High Tower , is a supertall skyscraper approved for construction in Jeddah,Saudi Arabia at a cost of SR4.6 billion (US$1.23 billion). It will be the centerpiece and first phase of a US$20 billion (SR75 billion) proposed development known as Kingdom City that will be located along the Red Sea on the north side of Jeddah. If completed as planned, the tower will reach unprecedented heights, becoming the tallest building in the world, as well as the first structure to reach the one-kilometer mark. The tower was initially planned to be 1.6-kilometre (1 mi) high; however, the geography of the area proved unsuitable for a tower of that height. The design, created by architect Adrian Smith, incorporates many unique structural and aesthetic features. The creator and leader of the project is Saudi Arabian Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, the wealthiest Arab in the Middle East, and nephew of King Abdullah. Talal is the chairman of Kingdom Holding Company (KHC), the largest company in Saudi Arabia,which owns the project, and a partner in Jeddah Economic Company (JEC), which was formed in 2009 for the development of Kingdom Tower and City.Reception of the proposal has been highly polarized, receiving high praise from some as a culturally significant icon that will symbolize the nation's wealth and power, while others view it as a totally uncalled for achievement, questioning its socioeconomic motives, and forecasting that it will actually have negative financial consequences.




The building has been scaled down to a height of at least 1,000 metres (3,280.84 ft) (the exact height is being kept private while in development, similar to the Burj Khalifa), which, at about two-thirds of a mile, would still make it by far the tallest building or structure in the world to date,[11] standing at least 173 m (568 ft) taller than the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The tower will be the first phase of the Kingdom City development proposed for a large area of undeveloped waterfront land with an area of between 5,202,570 square metres (56,000,000 sq ft) (2 square miles) and 23,000,000 square metres (247,569,940 sq ft) (8.9 square miles), located roughly 20 km (12 mi) north of the port city of Jeddah. Kingdom City was designed by HOK Architects, and it is estimated that it will cost at least US$20 billion (SR75 billion) and take around 10 years to build. It will essentially become a new district of Jeddah. The focal point of the development, Kingdom Tower's primary purpose will be to house a Four Seasons hotel, Four Seasons serviced apartments, Class A office space, and luxury condominiums; it will also have the world’s highest observatory.

New Experience

As usual every weekend I will went back to my hometown which is in Seremban.It was a rainy all over the evening.I took train from Nilai to Senawang about 5.50pm,but I have to wait about half and hour because there was no train to Senawang.After waiting,finally the train arrives and started the journey to Senawang.

Along the way to Senawang it was rainy heavily and sometimes the train did not run smoothly because a lot of problem.After reaching Seremban Station suddenly the train have a technical problem and I was i little bit frustrated.The train cant continued the journey and I have to wait about half and hour.After half and hour waiting the conductor of the train told us that the train have a problem and he said we have to walk to the station.
About 7.30 I reach to the station and fortunately the train broke down not far from Seremban Station.
This was the new experience for me because this was the first time I caught in a train problem.

Today was the final match between Lee Chong wei and Lin Dan in world badminton championship.Unfortunately , our nation hope which is Dato' Lee Chong Wei was defeated by Lin Dan. The match was very tough since the two players chasing each other to get a point.In the first  set Dato' Lee Chong Wei won the game but the 2nd and 3rd set Lin Dan won it, but I still impressed with the game because Dato' Lee chong Wei still manage to fight back all threat from Lin Dan.
