On Monday night, magician David Blaine attempted to break the world record by holding his breath underwater for nine minutes and while he was unsuccessful in the trick, one Grand Junction company played a large role in the stunt.
The sphere that Blaine attempted to hold his breath for nine minutes in was constructed at the Reynolds Polymer technology plant in Grand Junction.
Reynolds Polymer has been in the Grand Valley for 13 years and is the premiere company in providing large acrylic shapes world wide.
Sixty percent of the commercial aquariums in the world were constructed by the company and following a phone call from one of Blaine's assistants, they quickly sprang into action.
The company is currently working on a project for Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA and has crafted acrylic shapes for Sea World in California and Epcot Center in Disney World in Florida as well.
