This shirt is so soft that the Men In Black wear it on casual Fridays.
The Space Needle was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World’s Fair. Since then, it had become a city landmark and an icon for the city.
During the event, there was a massive flame that burned bright at the head of the tower. It was a sight to behold!
From December 31, 1999, the Legacy Light or Skybeam was used to signal important events such as national holidays. There is a powerful beam of light from 85 million candelas shining skyward at the head of the needle.
Towering at 604 feet (184 meters), the Space Needle was considered as the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River back in the day. It’s 138 feet wide and weighs about 9,550 short tons. It was constructed to withstand strong winds and earthquakes up to 9.0 magnitude.
Underground, the Space Needle has about 30 feet foundation more. The needle or the tower is connected using 72 30-foot-long bolts.
Visitors can go up to the Needle’s observation deck and marvel at the sights of the downtown Seattle skyline, the Olympic and Cascade Mountains, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and Elliott Bay.
