The Longest Conveyor Belt in the World
Tuesday, 15th August 2006 by Alex Turnbull
Guess where The Longest Conveyor Belt in the World is? Western Sahara of course.
(More than half of the conveyor is in high-res, but the particularly cool section shown here has been captured in super high-res as part of the National Geographic Megaflyover project.)
If we zoom quite far out (to help grasp the scale of this massive machine) it looks distinctly like a lot of phosphate has been lost to the Saharan winds…
