The Great Stalacpipe Organ: the worlds largest musical instrument

"Located deep in the Luray Caverns in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley is the Great Stalacpipe Organ, the worlds largest musical instrument.

Stalactites covering 3 1/2 acres of the surrounding caverns produce tones of symphonic quality when electronically tapped by rubber–tipped mallets.

This most unique, one–of–a–kind instrument was invented in 1954 by Mr. LeIand W. Sprinkle of Springfield, Virginia, a mathematician and electronic scientist at the Pentagon."

"Japan is a heavily–urbanized country. Over 35 million people live in the Greater Tokyo Area, making it the most populous metropolitan area in the world. As one can imagine, this huge concentration of people requires a massive amount of infrastructure. One of these wonders is the Japanese sewer system."
