New Image of Disaster Released
Space Imaging has released a second photograph of the devastation at the World Trade Center taken by its IKONOS satellite. In the previous image, taken the same day of the collapse, much of the area was shrouded in thick smoke. This new image, taken three days after, clearly shows the massive amount of rubble facing rescue workers searching for survivors. IKONOS is the world's first high-resolution commercial Earth imaging satellite, capable of producing 1-metre resolution images.
