The World's Largest Panoramic Photo 
Canon 7D and & EF 400 f/2.8L IS II were used to make this 320 gigapixel.
http://btlondon2012.co.uk/pano.html

An amazing image of London taken from the top of the BT Tower has set a new record for the world’s largest panoramic photo. The image shows a full 360 degree view of London in incredible detail.

Project by numbers:
• 320 – the number of gigapixels in the photo
• 48,640 – the number of individual images shot
• 3 – the number of days it took to shoot all the individual photos
• 3 – the number of months over which the computer processed the final result
• 60,000 – times bigger than an iPhone 4 photo
• 98 – the number of meters long if printed in normal photographic resolution
• 24 – the number of meters high if printed in normal photographic resolution
• 29th – The floor at the BT Tower where the photos were taken
• 20 – number of miles distant to the viewable horizon

I hope that we get there in my life time. The 3d printing on site to build infrastructure looks like an enabling technology.
 
This week on Planetary Radio:

NASA scientist Harley Thronson tells us about a new initiative that is figuring out how we will get men and women to the red planet at a reasonable price.

Emily Lakdawalla reports on Curiosity’s passage over dunes that made engineers nervous. Bill Nye reveals NASA’s plans for a lunar rover that may launch in 2018. Mat Kaplan joins Bruce Betts in a TV studio to record this week’s What’s Up segment.

View from hotel window. Not the best of view but we are near the river, which looks like a canal. Lots of places eat to there.

U got it right, most of the rivers in SG are actually canals.

Do not let it spoil your Saturday, but think about it please;
Even if it'll spoil your whole weekend and bother you for years;
Read GOOD books, think for yourself, think without the box;
Isaac Asimov hit the nail on the head;
