The Wonders of Google Earth

These are indeed different times we live in. The digital age means that as never before, information is at our fingertips. At the same time, the quantity of information available online means that protecting privacy is more difficult than ever, even if you are the government of the People’s Republic of China.

Images taken by a commercial satellite and available via Google Earth show China’s new strategic ballistic missile submarine, the Jin-class, at dock in northeastern China. The detail is good enough to reconstruct the layout of the sub in some detail.

If you want to look for yourself, enter the coordinates 38° 49′ 4.40″ N, 121° 29′ 39.82″ E.
