China's Three Gorges Dam
It is hard to describe how magnificent the Three Gorges dam is when you see it up close.  This is the largest construction project ever in human history.  The sheer size is overwhelming.   While admiring the engineering accomplishment, there is also this nagging discomfort that the price China is paying to the environment, its culture and the challenge of daming one of the world's mighty rivers are all too high.

The magnificent gorge

The Yangtze river

Just imagine...

The dam

2/3 Done

It's utterly huge

Strike a pose

The big picture

Overlooking the dam

It's about the power

A work in progress

The ship lock

8 ships at a time

Again, size counts

Understatement!!!

""Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."




"I want to thank the astronauts who are with us, the courageous spacial entrepreneurs who set such a wonderful example for the young of our country."




"Had we to do it over again, we would look at the consequences of catastrophic success, being so successful so fast that an enemy that should have surrendered or been done in escaped and lived to fight another day."
