But, we do have something almost as cool. Time Magazine just published a great story about the project and have a GigaPan panoramic image embedded in the story.
GigaPans are gigapixel panoramas, digital images with billions of pixels. They are huge panoramas with fascinating detail, all captured in the context of a single brilliant photo. Phenomenally large, yet remarkably crisp and vivid, gigapans are available to be explored at GigaPan.com.
You can see the fixtures as installed and get a close look at the beacon mechanism. It's a pretty amazing piece of engineering and being able to zoom in so you can see the connectors and bolts is just mind-bending.
