BTW, look what arrived yesterday. Gotta give it a wash (the car, not the decal) before I apply it though.


Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)

"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.

The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.

Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.

The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.

Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.

The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”

     The contour of this F-5E’s nose and fuselage was modified by Northrop-Grumman, to shape the sonic boom that emanates from it, reducing its intensity. The program, called the Shaped Sonic Boom Demonstration, was a joint effort between NASA, Northrop-Grumman and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

     After this modified boom was recorded thousands of times, using an F-15B as a close-up chase aircraft, a Blanik L-23 Glider from afar, and an array of 42 sensors on the ground, the data showed that the noise level of the modified boom was 1/3 less intense than one emitting from an unmodified F-5E.

     This interesting R&D aircraft can be viewed at the Valiant Air Command Warbird Museum in Titusville, Florida, just outside the gate of Kennedy Space Center.


Be careful with your kindness. [x]
