Petrov’s Decision Event 9/10 - 9/17
This week is our Petrov's Decision Event!
On September 26, 1983, the Soviet satellite monitoring base Serpukhov-15 received a signal that the United States had fired five missiles. Knowing that the new satellite systems were prone to false alarms, Lt. Colonel Stanislav Petrov reported it as such, figuring the U.S. would have launched hundreds of missiles if the attack had been real. It turned out that a satellite had misinterpreted reflections of sunlight near Montana as missiles. For his quick thinking, Petrov was later honored with several humanitarian awards.

Statue of Zeus Event 9/10 - 9/24

The ancient Olympic Games were a sacred rite as well as an athletic spectacle. Among the religious buildings at Olympia was the temple that held the Statue of Zeus, masterpiece of the great Athenian sculptor Phidias. The 40-foot god sat on an exquisitely decorated throne. On his right hand stood a small Nike, whose favor as goddess of victory was much in demand among athletes, while his left grasped a scepter with an eagle perched on top.
Like the Athena that Phidias had sculpted earlier for the Parthenon, the Zeus was made of gold and ivory over a wooden frame. A reflecting pool of olive oil kept the ivory from drying out and cracking. As long as the Olympics continued, the statue remained in good repair. However, the Christian emperor Theodosius I banned the Games along with all other pagan rites in 392 CE, and within a century the Zeus was destroyed.
At first glance the Statue of Zeus might not compare favorably to the Colossus, the other statue among the Seven Wonders. After all, Helios stood more than twice as tall. But Zeus was made of precious gold and ivory rather than common bronze. He dominated an interior space, no doubt amplifying his majesty. And he survived eight centuries while the Rhodian statue collapsed within sixty years. On balance it seems that the scales, as always, favored Zeus.
For the duration of the event, Farms, Caravans, and Oil Wells will produce:
• 80% More Food!
• 80% More Gold!
