The shaking news broke the record of the distance of human being standing on earth , not flying , few days ago, as a milestone --- the Burj Khalifa( Burj Dubai). the 828 meters hight almost double the figure of the second hightest building in the world.

•  Highest number of stories in the world
•  Highest occupied floor in the world
•  Highest outdoor observation deck in the world
•  Elevator with the longest travel distance in the world

And here are some of the essential numbers associated with the world’s tallest building:
  • 95 – the distance in kilometres at which Burj Dubai’s spire can still be seen
