Hamad Visible From SpaceGraffiti // Monday, 25 Jul 2011
Now we’re going to really confuse any extraterrestrial aliens keeping an eye on earth, Hamad, the almighty leader of planet earth they could be thinking. Ether way, that’s one big tag.
“Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan, a billionaire Sheikh and member of Abu Dhabi's ruling family, has had his name carved into the sandy surface of an island he owns in the Persian Gulf. It is no lackadaisical sand-scrawling, though: At half a mile tall and 2 miles long altogether, the letters HAMAD are visible from space.”
