Ex-Stardust Casino, Las Vegas

It must be a thankless task for those poor Google Maps compilers, especially when people just go around blowing things up. The satellite image porrayed on this Google Map shows the Stardust Casino, or rather what was the Stardust Casino, because now it is an ex-casino, it has ceased to be.

As you can see by watching the accompanying video the Stardust Casino has now been blown to smithereens. And this being America the demolition is accompanied with fireworks, lasers and a giant countdown clock.

There are no prizes for guessing why the Stardust is being demolished. That's right it is being replaced with an even bigger and better casino, the Echelon Place which will take up a massive 83 acres of land.
