    The Tallest Skyscraper In The World Almost Complete

    http://gizmodo.com/5038788/tallest-s...-defies-belief

    It's called the Burj Dubai and is simply amazing. It is an extraordinary feat of engineering.

    However they are currently planning another skyscraper which will be even taller than the Burj Dubai, called the Al Burj.

    A comparison pic of how they all might look if/when finished and if they were all lined up:
