Virtual Magic

First off, we need some background information.
It took about 10 years and then Disneyland began running out of room.
I think the first ride to go underneath and over to the other side of the berm was "It's a Small World.
Followed by Pirates of the Caribean, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Bear Country, Indiana Jones, and I guess Toon Town.
I find it fascinating how they Imagineer the buildings that contain rides outside of the park.
Joe Cardello has created some nice renderings at Virtual Magic.
You can also find track Layouts here.
He uses the same free rendering software that Jeff Skinner uses for Bend in the River.

We will be getting some more nice pictures of Earth with the Lunar surface as a foreground.
Thanks to the Japanese SELenological and ENgineering Explorer.
I hope that they can do a flyby of an Apollo site.

Klaatu barada nikto

They are doing a remake of the best Science Fiction film ever made.
The Day the Earth Stood Still

I wonder if the spaceship will land in the Ellipse?

I hope it doesn't have too much PC garbage in it.
How much do you want to bet that Klaatu Comes to warn us about our CO2 emissions?

The Archives are located here.
Created by a fan of the show.
The Stats are the interesting part.
Like these from Season 24.

Sony's official site is Here.
Not nearly as interesting.
