The Space Needle actually sways one inch for every 10 mph of wind, and at 3,700 tons, that’s kind of scary. Thankfully its concrete foundation goes 30 feet underground.

The 120 ft by 120 ft plot, on which the Space Needle was eventually built, was purchased in 1961. This led to one of the most extraordinary Space Needle facts βˆ’ the tower was constructed in just 400 days! It was consequently dubbed the 400 Day wonder, and opened at the 1962 World Fair on schedule. πŸ“· by @andre.favarao #spaceneedle #funfacts #ig_captures #seattle #seattlewa #nightshot

Dale Chihuly sustained deep cuts to his face and lost sight in his left eye after a car crash that sent him through his windshield. The accident also affected his perception of depth. Due to the challenges caused by the accident, the way he worked radically changed. Since he no longer felt safe working with hot molten glass, he opted to direct his team of glassblowers instead of working hands-on. πŸ“· by @dlkatzdesigns #chihuly #seattle #spaceneedle #seattlespaceneedle #sightseeing
