    Default Angel Falls discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Angel Falls

    Angel Falls is the Longest free fall of water in the world.

    At 979 meters high, it is 15 times higher than Niagara.

    Angel Falls is located in the Guayana highlands, Venezuela.

    The falls are named after Jimmy Angel, a bush pilot who first saw the falls in 1933 while searching for a gold ore bed.

    The tallest non permanent waterfall in the world is the Catira which is found close to the Angel Falls.

    Maxx, you are right. The placemark of the bot lies 40 miles south of the Auyan-Tepui, the mountain where the waterfall is located. Something interesting: The ecosystem on top of the mountain is completely different to the jungle ecosystem down below.

    I will take care of it, but please next time use the "File Corrections" thread.

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.
