What's The Tallest Thing We Could Ever Possibly Build?

• http://www.sciencealert.com, JACINTA BOWLER

Humans have been fascinated with stars for thousands of years, so it's no surprise that we keep wanting to make taller and taller buildings that stretch towards them.

There will eventually come a point where we can no longer build a taller building – but what is that point?

As the new video by RealLifeLore shows, it's probably taller than you think.

So let's start with what already exists. Your regular old one story house is probably around 4.5 metres (15 feet) high.

The tallest statue in the world is the Spring Temple Buddha is around 28 times that at 128 metres (420 feet) tall. Just to explain how big this thing is, if you jumped from its head, you'd be looking at a 5.5 second delay before you hit the ground.
