Interesting I've actually been wondering what the government would do if another landmark was lost to terrorist attack or even natural disaster.
The bottom line: Should disaster strike, and a political decision be made to rebuild, exact replicas — or architectural clones — could be constructed fairly quickly. How do you replicate the 225-ton, 305-foot Lady Liberty? The 288-foot Capitol dome? The 60-foot busts of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Roosevelt?
Deploying high-powered, laser-scanning technology to record the landmarks from every angle, the feds have been creating three-dimensional digital models of their complex exterior features. They also have scanned part of the ornate interior of the Capitol.
Kinda cool.
