Niagara Falls - 10 Shocking Facts
IN 50,000 YEARS, NIAGARA WON'T EXIST
because it retreats by 30 cm per year due to erosion.
EACH OF THE 3 WATER CASCADES HAS A NAME
On the US side:
- "American Falls"
- "Bridal Veil Falls"
On the Canadian side:
- "Horseshoe Falls"
NIAGARA IS 12 THOUSAND YEARS OLD
and was created after the disappearance of the last glaciation on the
Canadian-American Great Lakes.
WE ONLY WATCH HALF OF NIAGARA
while the other part of the water goes to the world's first hydroelectric power plant designed by Nikola Tesla himself.
FIRST TO DISCOVER NIAGARA
for the modern world European was Louis Hennepin in 1678.
NIAGARA IS FREEZING
in winter, creating an ice bridge on which it was still possible to walk until 1912.
THE WATERFALL RETREATED 11 KM
from the height of the city of Queenston towards Lake Ontario due to erosion.
OVER 2 MILLION LITERS
water pours over Niagara Falls per second.
A ROPE WALKER WALKED ON A ROPE OVER NIAGARA
550 meters from the US side to the Canadian side, in wind and fog at an altitude of 46 meters in only 25 minutes.
(He was convincing the US and Canadian authorities for 2 years to do that)
"HORSESHOE" THE MOST SPECTACULAR
waterfall is never fully visible because it is partially covered by a cloud of rising water drops.
Let me know in the comment - did you know those facts?
