Fun Fact of the day


Singapore plans to build floating burbs.

With a fast-growing population of nearly 6 million people, all of whom must cram on a mere 719 square kilometers—or about 447 square miles—of land, Singapore needs more space than ever. And, according to a report in Hakai magazine, they're working on plans to create that space on 40 floating rafts.

The each individual section would be about the size of a baseball diamond, weigh more than 7.5 metric tons, and be tethered to the seabed about 18 meters below.
