The Eiffel Tower...
The heat from the sun causes the tower's top to move 6-7 inches away
You can rediscover the architecture of the top floor as it was in 1889!
the tower was also built to assume the title of tallest human-made structure in the world
it held that title for 41 years before losing it to the Chrysler building in 1930
Gustave Eiffel engraved on the tower seventy-two names of French scientists, engineers, and mathematicians in recognition of their contributions
