Recovering the Satellites

Check out this airplane graveyard on Google Maps, as well as Death Valley and the coast just south of Miami.

I'd also like to know why two thirds of the downtown Minneapolis satellite photo is all blurry. What, you can't focus from that far away? ;-)

It's all the zinc cadmium sulfide mixed with Bacillus globigii the government dropped on the city back in '53.

1953: U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocracy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.
