That's a perfect start. However, many civil engineers is still hesitant to use these Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Plastic (CFRP). They will wait until someone is dare enough to use such material and investigate the experience of the structure. I am confident that this will replace the conventional steel in the future. Anyway, back to the topic.

Congratz for being the highest structure ever built. I can't wait for it to finish.

In my opinion, today, the equivalent of building Pyramid of Khufu in Egypt is building a city in outer space the size of Manhattan.

41 decades are 410 years. The pyramids were WTB for 41 centuries or 410 decades.

does anyone had to pay his life as a tribute to this building?
or safety on the DB place is perfect?

I ment how high is the price to rise a building so high...do we need to sacrifise a human life or no?

In fact a worker fell from the 130th to the 108th floor but yes, this was the only casualty.
