This panoramic photo of Yankee Stadium on July 4 was shot using GigaPan technology and can be seen on SI.com. Online users can magnify any detail, including those called out here as examples—from Alex Rodriguez approaching the plate in the first inning against the Red Sox to the facade of the new Yankee Stadium beyond leftfield to a fan with a Cracker Jack box. Taken by a robotic camera, the photo was shot over the course of 10 minutes and consists of 124 frames stitched together. Carnegie Mellon developed GigaPan technology last year in collaboration with NASA.
Members of the Chinese military cleared algae from a Bay of Qingdao beach after an infestation covered one third of the milelong Olympic sailing course last week. After mobilizing 10,000 workers aboard 1,000 boats, Qingdao officials say the waters will be clear in time for the Games.
O, What a Finish!
In an all- Oregon finish, Nicholas Symmonds struck a pose after winning the 800 meters in the U.S. Olympic Trials on June 30 in Eugene, Ore. (page 62). With a time of 1:44.10, Symmonds, a graduate of Willamette University in nearby Salem, edged Andrew Wheating of the University of Oregon (far left and inset). Christian Smith (far right), Symmonds's teammate at the Oregon Track Club, dived across the line to place third and also qualify for the Beijing Games.
