New world record for panoramic image

This one is 70 gigapixels (590508 x 120750).
Very impressive.
They are using Silverligh to display on the Web.
Such a large image should be viewable by VLIV, it just need the file (actual format is unknown, looks to be PPM) to be converted to TIFF (actually a 64 bit TIFF).
Final image size is about 200 Gigabytes, not something you download or store easily !
