SkyWatch Friday #6 - Atomium

Atomium
The Atomium in the outskirts of Brussels in Belgium.
Designed by the engineer André Waterkeyn for the International Exhibition of Brussels, that took place here in 1958, the Atomium is a structure that is half way between sculpture and architecture, symbolising an iron of crystal, magnified 165 billion times. (Source: Atomium.be)

These people on the top were cleaning one of the pods. They used a
zip-line to go down. Pretty cool.
