Athlone Towers Blasted Early for the Right Weather

This is such an awesome video by Adriano Bottega of the experience in Cape Town. On the 22 August 2010 the two Cooling Towers at the Athlone Power Station fell to the floor in about 9 seconds (from video). Nicely recorded man, epic tune and slow motion replay! The towers were built in the 1960's and have now marked another permanent move toward better infrastructure and a faster moving South Africa. Congratulations and respects to all who helped bring them down smoothly (looked like was going to tip..), safely and providing an area for public viewing.
