The Space Needle is a futuristic, 605 foot tower that was built for the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle, Washington.
At the time when it was built, the Needle was the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River.
It was built to last. It can withstand winds up to 200 miles per hour and earthquakes up to 9.1 magnitude.
At the top, there is a rotating restaurant where people can view the city and the surrounding mountains while enjoying dinner.
Recently, the Space Needle celebrated its 50th anniversary.
The Needle was painted gold, "Galaxy Gold," which was the exact same color it was painted during the World's Fair.
Here are some photographs of the Space Needle throughout its 50 years of standing strong.
