The new complex, Market Square Tower, boasts the insane pool as one of its amenities. The pool extends 10 feet out from the building, the Houston Chronicle reported.

"You’ll swim amongst the sky and stars in this unique, one-of a kind, ‘floating’ phenomenon," the apartment building says on its Facebook page.

There is also another pool on a lower level for those who don't want to feel like they are swimming in the sky, the newspaper reported.

Here's a view of the pool from the ground. *gulp*

The video of the death-defying pool soon went viral, and people were really divided on whether they would take a dip in it. A lot of people were like, "Absolutely not."

Why why why no no no.

"I don't think I'm that brave," one person said.

A pool with a glass bottom. I don't think I'm that brave.

But plenty of other people were totally down.
