    Hi, this is probably a silly question, but why can't we make bridges between all land masses in the world? at least all the continents? are they too far apart? I did some research and I looked up the longest bridge, then I used Google maps to measure the distances between all the continents and it seems possible, can someone please explain this?

    Depth. The Florida Keys are linked by crazy long bridges, technically called "causeways" where the shallow water is marshy and rated "land". To cross the Strait of Gibraltar with suspension bridge would require columns something like a kilometer high.
