Russian Vodka Satellites

Wine Searcher posts interesting news that Russia is using satellites to monitor vodka production. The satellites take infrared photos that can be used to detect illegal vodka production at a rate of $500 per photo. In the effort to curb alcoholism, Russia has cut the number of legal vodka producers in half over the last year, but illegal production is still high. The legality of such methodology is questionable, according to Russian lawyers.
