Huge KFC Colonel Sanders Logo Visible From Outer Space

KFC Corporation claims to be the world’s first brand visible from outer space by unveiling a record-breaking 87,500 square feet, updated Colonel Sanders logo in the Area 51 desert. Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is an international brand famous for their delicious chicken. The giant Colonel Sanders logo was built off ‘The World’s Only Extraterrestrial Highway’ in Rachel, Nevada.

“The “Face from Space” took more than 3,000 hours to create from inception to launch and was built by Synergy, a leading event company.

The logo consists of 65,000 one-foot by one-foot painted tile pieces that were assembled like a giant jigsaw puzzle: 6,000 red, 14,000 white, 12,000 eggshell, 5,000 beige and 28,000 black.

The logo took 24 days, working around-the-clock, to manufacture and ultimately produce. It then took six days on site to construct the logo, during which time the logo design pieces were kept hidden and under cover from identified and unidentified flying objects.”

Several Target Stores logos have been viewable from Google Earth for more than a year and KFC might not be the world’s first brand visible from outer space after all.

I remember the giant Maxim Eva Longoria Billboard on Google Earth some time back. Of course there are many more interesting things seen from space thanks to Google.
