A brand new installation in the French Alps, called Step Into the Void, opens today for those who are not afraid of heights. On the uppermost terrace of Aiguille du Midi, Europe’s highest mountain peak, sits a glass cube that looks like it’s suspended in mid-air. Now the tallest attraction in Europe, the structure has five transparent sides made of three layers of glass binded together. Of course, when you step into the box the most vertigo-inducing feeling will come when you look straight down through the glass floor to the dizzying view 3,395 feet (or 1,035 meters) below.
