An utterly FEROCIOUS display of the conquest of fire and human intelligence. You're looking at the incredibly frightening and awe inspiring steel furnace at the Emirates Steel in Abu Dhabi, one of the biggest steel factories in the world. This furnace is as big as a 10 storey building, louder than a passenger plane and as hot as a volcano!
