Smile to QuickBird

production of google earth artefact in chelyabinsk  1

The production of Google Earth “artefacts” – the bright spots on the dull satellite landscapes seems to be a popular task nowadays in Russia. We’ve had already a story about guys from Moscow who have written a curse word on the roof of one of the buildings which can be nicely see now at Google Earth.

This time a whole crown of people in participated has been aware of the exact timetable of the “QuickBird” satellite passing over the Chelyabinsk city and planned to make a big yellow smiley face of their bodies on one of the city squares in order to commemorate their city in Google Earth.

You can see on these photos some part of this process, if it was successful or not we’ll see after the next Google Earth update.

  2. How inspiring. Typical of a person with soviet thinking to attempt something Web 2.0. Some people here do get it (whatever “it” is), though.

  11. Russia has also banned a popular show on TV, stating that if they did not stop filming it was permissible to kill them. Also TV shows promoting silliness, frivolousness, or rats are banned. They specifically mentioned wanting to kill Mickey Mouse.
