The Eiffel Tower is the tallest and most known structure in Paris, France. The tower was designed by Alexandre Gustave Eiffel to the 1889 World's Fair in Paris and is today the most visited monument in the world. It sports three visiting decks, all connected by a series of elevators and stairs. The tower has two resturants in the first and second floors and a broadcast tower. At night, thousands of lanterns would light up the Eiffel Tower in a spectacular light show. Now, with no one there to witness the show, how long will the Eiffel Tower last in a life after people?
1 Day after People: Power plants using fossil fuel run out all across the world. The light show of the Eiffel Tower has stopped forever, and in the resturant, the refrigerators stop.
3 Days after People: Food begins to rot inside the resturants of the Eiffel Tower.
75 Years after People: The elevators fall down to the ground, but they do little damage to the tower itself.
200 Years after People: During the time of humans, the Eiffel Tower was painted once every seven years in order to prevent corrosion. Now, with no humans to paint the Eiffel Tower in over two centuries, corrosion has destroyed the tower's connection points and all it takes is a strong wind for the top of the Eiffel Tower to collapse. Only the legs remain.
500 Years after People: The second floor of the Eiffel Tower collapses but with the first floor remaining intact, the Eiffel Tower still stands.1000 Years after People: Although it seems impossible, the first floor of the Eiffel tower owes its longevity thanks to its thick feet and legs. But now it's time After 1000 years without people, the legs begin to break, and the remaining floor of the tower collapses. The Eiffel Tower is now a rusty pile of metal covered in vegetation, and Paris is now almost unrecognizable.
