The search for James Kim is being expanded: Not only is the National Guard on their way, but a satellite is being rerouting to help spot the man. The eye-in-the-sky is GeoEye's Ikonos.

The satellite could record images of an area as large as 2,000 square kilometers. The cameras on the Ikonos boast a very high resolution, able to get a bead on objects 39 inches wide.

Satellites are the new Lassie.

Hopefully, James "Macgyver" Kim is putting the lighters, a strobe from his camera, and snowshoes to good use. If you know anything, please contact the folks who are running JamesandKati.com. Our thoughts are with you, buddy.—Brian Lam
