Astronaut Bruce McCandless II floats, unfettered and free, alone and insignificant, a minuscule speck suspended above our beautiful blue world. McCandless carried out humanity’s first untethered spacewalk on February 7, 1984.
Nothing can possibly compare to the awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, breathtaking beauty of the mighty Iguazu Falls, which are located on the border between Brazil and Argentina.Picture a waterfall system that is taller than Niagra Falls and TWICE as wide: 275 separate waterfalls roaring down 2.7 kilometres of the Iguazu River, the water flow covering a surface area of about 40 Ha (1.3 million ft²)!
Not for Iguazu Falls, which currently has the greatest annual flow of any waterfall in the world! It is said that when Eleanor Roosevelt first saw the falls, she immediately exclaimed: “Poor Niagara!” Poor Niagra indeed. The most impressive falls of Iguazu Falls, lovingly referred to by the locals as ‘The Devil’s Throat,’ is a U-shaped chasm where 14 falls plunge to their death from more than 350 feet. Incidentally, the mist that rises from the falls at Devil’s Throat can be up to 490 feet tall!
A unique species of birds called Great Dusky Swifts live behind the falls, and can be seen plunging right into them in order to reach their nest. Home-sweet-home! Even if you’ve never seen the falls in person, chances are you’ve seen them on the big screen. The falls have been featured in movies such as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Miami Vice, Mr. Magoo, to name a few.
