Tallest on the Earth

Currently the tallest structure in the world is the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai at over 2700 feet tall.

There’s all kinds of debate at to what defines ‘the tallest’. Do antennas count? Does the structure have to be inhabitable? If it starts under-water does that count?

What is amazing to me is just how much taller the Burj Khalifa in UAE is compared to everything else. Standing at 2723 feet, the next structure is 2120 feet. In fact, most of the structures from 2000-2100 feet are radio towers and one oil platform.

So just how tall could we build anything? Here’s a great video to let you know
