World’s Largest Beaver Dam Is So Big You Can See It From Space (Just Like That Car Parked On My Block)
Have you heard about the giant beaver dam that was recently discovered in a national park in Canada? The beavers have been working on it since the 1970s. It’s 28,000 feet long (that’s more than twice the length of the Hoover Dam.) And, as everyone keeps reporting, it is visible from space. But so what? You can see everything from space now. (Or at least, the Pennsylvania state revenue service can. Yikes!) In fact, I’m using the same kind of technology that Canadian ecologist Jean Thie used to discover the dam to look at a red car parked outside my apartment as I type this. Looks like the sunroof might be open.
