3. Worldview-3 Satellite Takes Custom Super High-Rez Pics From Space


Lockheed Martin is planning to launch a new satellite called the WorldView-3 satellite on August 13th.

What can it do? Say, for example, you wanted to take a shot of your house from above. You can place an order and, within a few hours, a super-clear (and super-scary) overhead shot will land in your mailbox.

The crazy thing? It can take shots as close as ten inches from the ground.
