Travel Tuesday

Like rock?  Check out Stonehenge.  Built in Salisbury Plain, England around 2,500 BC, what was created then is actually gone!  What you see now is a replacement Stonehenge, built around 2,300 BC.  Why?  The builders wanted something bigger.  The sandstone rocks you see today weigh as much as 45 tons (99,208 pounds).  They’re also perfectly aligned with the sun on the summer solstice.  Pretty impressive math without a calculator!
