What In The World Happened Here? LIV (54):

Two-for-one. Two somewhat parallel events - you need to get both.

Sure. But only one: X.

Some more vowels... (One is deliberately wrong, and # = number)

B## + P = B## + U = B## + X# = (BIG/P)

SaraC: good guess or do you have it?

One location is 5168.055 miles from the Wall, the other is 7252.312 miles, Great Circle Route, of course.

Harvey: The sites are concrete as in mortar, although a lot of slide rules (a weapon of math instruction) were used in the making of the events. In fact, they used roomfuls of Computers.

Sarah, we'd love to see the trip report!

People keep reminding us that there are other mountains besides Mt Whitney. smirk

so now we know it was probably built in the 1950s or 1960s, but we kinda already knew that from looking. The use of NASA- grade computer rooms of IBM 360s or whatever suggests some sort of macroscientific study, maybe like timing of cosmic rays zapping through the Earth, or some such.

I not sure what gender computers are these days, but back then, a Computer (capital "C" deliberate) was female and lusted after by Engineers. And after the mating ceremony, everything was done above ground level.

That is Sara's 5,000 miles from Hadrian's wall. Here is the other location. One is in the jungle, the other in the desert.
