TEC DIVISION OF OPTICAL EQUIPMENT (TEC-DOE) says they have a telescope that sees anti-matter. You can get it on Amazon for a grand.

You're going to have to be more careful about running around naked. Google has sold it's in-house satellite network to Planet, who plans to make a fifty-trillion-pixel resolution composite image of the Earth’s whole surface updated every damned day.

math doesn't add up for that.... that makes about 254,000 pixels per square mile. so, about 500 pixels to the linear mile. about one pixel per ten feet.

I'm the pasty white pixel in the upper left corner of the map.

This constellation will have two components. A standard Planet satellite, which it calls a “dove,” is cheaply made. It is essentially an extra-large Cubesat, a widely used standard for building small spacecraft. It captures pixels that are three meters to a side. Each of the seven Terra Bella satellites, on the other hand, is about the size of a dorm-room fridge. A Terra Bella satellite detects pixels that are 90 centimeters to a side under good conditions.
There are example pics at the link.

When the whole earth daily picture goes up it will be at medium resolution, but they hope to go to high resolution soon. Right now only a third of the earth is covered in high resolution with the equipment they have.

Of course the military can see right through your roof when you're doing the nasty or taking a bath.

The CIA has a Flickr account where they post declassified pictures, maps, spy equipment, etc. There's quite a bit there and some is interesting.

You've probably seen it but, if you haven't, enjoy some juvenile humour at Mr T's expense.

Takes a few seconds to load. Use your mouse to move and blow the trumpet.
