The Freshman Fishwrap / IHTFP Hack

American Flag

Location: Building 10
Date: September 17, 2001
Perpetrators: Orion

On September 11, 2001, the worst terrorist attack in US history leveled the World Trade Center in New York City and destroyed a part of the Pentagon in Washington, DC. The nation united in shock and grief, but also in patriotism. American flags flew from car antennas and homes around the country.

Hackers at MIT added to the spirit with a giant flag on the face of Building 10. Its size may not be apparent in the picture; the flag was 25' by 16'.
