Dare To ‘Step Into The Void’ Over the French Alps This 2014

If you are up for a real challenge this 2014, you might want to visit the 11,526 feet high Aiguille du Midi, or Needle of the South over the French Alps. For thirty years, the place has been the home to the highest vertical ascent cable car. Its latest highlight is the glass box installation called ‘Step Into The Void’. The box is composed of five panes of very resilient glass that contains three discrete sheets each. The glass panes are held in place by a C-shaped steel equipment fixed to the rock face. Once inside the glass, you will find yourself above a half-mile vertical drop and the closest ground underneath will be about 3,300 feet below. Ready? Set? Go? Happy New Year everyone!
