Congratulations ! A wonderful find !
Did that bug take a trip in the satellite camera, and is it laying eggs?
|Re: Alien Bug||adsci||4/25/06 7:21 AM|
whoa! how can this be?
if its launched with the sattelite it should show up on more images!
and if not? a 50 feet roach isnt reported in germany yet
maybe some guy who got the images from the satellite made a joke before selling the data to google?
|Re: Alien Bug||tHeF8bman||4/26/06 12:22 AM|
Isn't there a possibility that the bug was flying around and got caught in the zoom???

Wonderful finding for a first post. Congratulations !
This bug is really huge measuring almost 150 feet. This could also be one of the world's first bug which would have gone to space unofficially.
This is a great finding and must be placed on top of some forum or blog.

Yes, he states in the first post the measurement of the insect, but on the other point, "Space"?? I would have thought the resolution of the pics would more than likely been taken at a low altitude.
So possibly not a space bug, Eh?

Interesting find - a first. It looks like a thrips, a very small (1mm or so) insect. The size might explain how it got involved in the printing process. The brown glob at the posterior end is bug poop , forced out of the poor critter as it got squished between a glass plate and the film during the scanning process.

EDIT: I added an image of a thrips alongside for comparison - if anybody cares.
EDIT: Thrips is the singular and plural - like fish, sheep or deer. (I just found this out from an article in Google Sightseeing which referenced this article) Wikipedia - thrips

The giant bug of Hulen is laying eggs.
Three lines of its eggs (or spoor?) are near Halverde
Keep looking and watching for the alien invasion.

|Re: Alien Bug||richvn||9/29/06 3:52 AM|
What do you mean, got squished between the film and a plate during the scanning process? What scanning process? What plate? Doesn't google use satellite images, why would they need to rescan them and introduce glitches like this?
Apologies if everyone knows the answer to this already...please take pity on my ignorance..

I at first thought it was an earwig, just missing it's pincers...
|Re: Alien Bug||Hill||9/29/06 8:55 PM|
The majority of GE images are derived from satellites. But the most detailed regions are the result of aerial photography. Zoom out a bit and you can see the imagery in those areas is made up a many small photos stitched together.
|Re: Alien Bug||Blaskowicz||11/5/06 4:21 PM|
If it's flying, where are his wings?
|Re: Alien Bug||Lrae||1/3/07 3:21 PM|
|Re: Alien Bug||Anonymous||1/3/07 7:47 PM|
Haha! Cleverly done! They carefully cut out one field and repaired the image - probably during the last update I suppose.
Hmmm .. I wonder whether they can do anything about suspected thrip droppings as well?
