A close relative of mine once revealed he had worked in the Corona, Keyhole, and Rhyolite programs. I asked about those rumors. Instead of a straight answer, I was treated to a lengthy discussion of optical theory which, if I understood correctly, implied that the license plate would not only be quite readable from 50,000 feet, but it would be readable from earth orbit.

I believe it. In current imagery from Google Earth, I can look into my backyard and clearly discern the elements of the various TV and radio antennas and guy wires sprouting on the roof.
