Since the beginning of Civilizations Humans have tried to achieve big goals which were impossible to achieve in the past But as time passed they were able to achieve those Goals due to Advancements in technology and Science. Biggest Achievement humans made is to cross rivers and Oceans using Planes and Ships but It was Impossible to make even small bridges for Man.
But as the Science and technology got more advanced Humans achieved these goals and not only small bridges, We are now able to build Bridges as long that a Common Man gets Stunned after watching these Structures.
