World’s highest structure

Although the Burj Dubai is the world’s highest building (now about 575m) it is not the world’s highest structure. This is the KVLY TV antenna in Blanchard, North Dakota, USA, which is 628m high.

This photo was taken a few kilometres away, and you can just about see the antenna in the centre of the picture

But the Burj Dubai is not finished and it is planned to be over 800m high, so it will probably become the highest structure some time later this year
