The 10,000 Year Clock

Jeff Bezos is paying to have a 10,000 year clock built in the wilderness. Watch this video of a 12.5' dia, 500 foot deep vertical shaft being drilled using "raise boring", a fascinating drilling technique.

The clock is an awesome engineering challenge that represents the greatness of Western Civilization. And it is privately funded!
