Nazca Culture

Nazca Culture

The Nazca culture of Peru, which existed 1000 years ago, is believed to have collapsed due to deforestation, resulting in floods that were severe enough to wipe their entire civilization out. They also built the Nazca Lines which are best seen from the air. In 1974, a man named Jim Woodman tested a theory that Nazca rode hot air balloons to view the Nazca lines. He built a balloon using 1000 year old weaving methods, filled it with smoke, and rode it upwards of 300 feet.
