What cars in Pyongyang might look like. There is more traffic these days than five years ago.

SkunkWerks: My wife's car in my driveway is visible from space.

Best Wesemania has gone nuclear.


Fun fact: conversely, satellites taking these pictures are visible from the ground- almost with the unaided eye. Somehow the Pentagon forgot this and mothballed the SR-71 because of it.


if you don't think the Pentagon already has a SR-71 replacement flying around you're very very naive!!! Ironic, coming from someone with your handle.

The Grand Canyon is "Visible From Space"

A parade is "visible with high resolution spy satellites"
 
2012-04-27 11:10:36 PM  

ChiliBoots: Kind of funny that there's about 50 times more people in the parade than spectators.



Kim Jong Un: Bring Me Everyone.
3rd Kim General: What do you mean, "Everyone?"
Kim Jong Un: EVE-RY-ONE.

Correct me if there's something newer and bigger, but I recall reading some time ago that the only man-made structure that is naked-eye visible from space is the Great Wall of China.

/yeah I know, a truly naked eye in space would soon boil away

... but not from any North Korean satellite, they are all at a negative altitude.

There is nothing"bizarre" about that parade. That sort of display is common all over the world.

Er, no. They mothballed the SR-71 because it's really friggin expensive to operate.

They get a great view of the bottom of the ocean, apparently. Or the top of the underside of water.

"Visible from space" means that it's visible to the naked eye to someone at least in low Earth orbit. It doesn't mean that a camera on a satellite can zoom in on it.
 
2012-04-28 01:23:56 AM  

NewportBarGuy: So is my johnson, if you zoom in like that.


Yeah, I can make out the individual people.

By their measure you can see people from space.

spentmiles: bim1154: Gyrfalcon: bim1154: desertfool: I imagine Un in the third picture thinking "I can have any one of these women.... Which one do I want?"

And then he eats her.

When I think about the shiat that Sadam Hussein's sons did for fun and some of the other nutjob leaders, I can't help thinking what this guy's "tastes" are.

Anything with soy sauce?

Hell, anything is possible even something with kimchi.

I remember in university, my buddy and I lived on the same block as a Japanese restaurant that sold the hottest, most explosive wasabi I've ever eaten. My buddy and I got into some serious wasabi eating contests. It started with a pea sized amount, moved up to golf ball, and pretty soon we were eating globs the size of naval oranges. Then he one upped it and snorted a big rail of it. I thought his eyes were going to pop out of his head. I did it after him and I thought I was going to have a seizure. Serious pain.

Then one day he comes home with almost a full gallon baggy of the stuff. He goes into the bathroom with it and comes out with a full enema bag. He yells, "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!" Then he jerked down his pants, shoved the nozzle up his anus, and squished it all in at once.

Half a second later, he throws up. Then he falls on the floor, just screaming and screaming and clawing at his insides. Since the wasabi is a thick paste, it just doesn't get pushed out like normal enema water. I wanted to take him to the emergency room, but he refused. I didn't think he was going to survive the night, but he did. And in the morning, I worshiped him as a God.

/Still keep a picture of him in a locket I wear around my neck.


Dude!!!! ROFLMAO!!!

You made me laugh so hard the beer came out my nose. I am glad I bought a keyboard protector. But you owe me a monitor.

Wow, the streets are so clean.
None of those pesky polluting citizens throwing their candy wrappers on the ground.

I tried my best (not really) to not pimp myself out, but there are some things that have to be spread out like a ducks foot.

They didn't "forget"--it was because whatever finally came out of Aurora was brought online.


And then the SR-71 was brought out of mothballs... for some reason.

SuperNinjaToad: if you don't think the Pentagon already has a SR-71 replacement flying around you're very very naive!!!


If you think the Pentagon can't be so naive as to believe satellites can't be seen by way of the incredibly state-of-the-art wielding of a common a telescope and a bit of squinting, you're pretty naive yourself.

If you don't remember the SR-71 being brought out of mothballs shortly after such illusions were dispelled- like when they figured out Hussein was moving his weapon emplacements with a seemingly strange foreknowledge of when satellites fly over the area- well, then it's possible you just weren't born yet.... possibly yesterday.

Mixolydian Master: [i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x465]

Well....yeah! Look at how hard it's zoomed in. Why not go all the way over the top with it and say how cars in Best Korea are visible from space. And alleys, boats, trees, buildings, water fountains....


The word "Glory" written in Korean is legible in that picture even if you don't zoom in very far--it's only two characters in a space the size of an entire football stadium. And the fact that the word is made of thousands of little Korean dudes standing in perfectly ordered lines actually does make it pretty impressive.

I seem to remember that the Mars Global Surveyor probe from over ten years ago had a camera and lens with that resolution, and NASA's budget is a tiny fraction of the DoD's. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the DoD had spy satellites by now that could see objects as small as a house cat.
