Space Needle


The Space Needle is probably the best-known landmark of Seattle, Washington. It was originally built for the 1962 World's Fair.

The Space Needle is 605 feet (184 meters) high, and 138 feet (42 meters) wide at its widest point. The observation deck is 520 feet (158 meters) above the ground ground, and the SkyCity restaurant is 152 meters (500 feet).

In many photographs of Seattle, the Space Needle appears to rise above the rest of city's skyscrapers, however this is caused by a trick of perspective. This is because the Space Needle is 0.8 miles (1.3 kilometers) to the Northwest of the skyscrapers, and most common camera angle places the Space Needle in the foreground.

Product Description:
When the United States entered the 1960s, the nation was swept up in the Space Race as the United States and the Soviet Union competed for supremacy in rocket and satellite technologies. Cities across the country hoped to attract new aerospace companies, but the city leaders of Seattle launched the most ambitious campaign of all. They invited the whole world to visit for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, and more than nine million people took them up on the offer. A colorful collection of exhibits turned 74 acres of rundown buildings into a futuristic wonderland where dozens of countries and companies predicted life in the future. The entire city was transformed with the addition of the soaring Space Needle and the futuristic monorail. When the fair ended, the site became a complex of parks and museums that remains a vibrant part of Seattle city life today.

Product Description:
What is that hovering over the Pacific Northwest city of Seattle, Washington? Is it part of a movie set? Is it a publicity stunt? Could it bean actual spaceship? When you first spy the soaring Space Needle, high above Seattle, it's easy to be confused. The people who designed it more than 50 years ago would be happy to know that their building still amazes and mystifies. They wanted to create something that looked as if it had come from the future, just in time for the 1964 World's Fair. The obstacles they faced, the problems they solved, and the decisions they made have turned the Space Needle into more than just an incredible site to visit - it makes for an incredible story.

Product Description:
Dal 2008 Marcella Nardi vive a Seattle, sulla costa occidentale degli USA.L’idea di creare una serie giallo/thriller parallela a quella italiana, che si svolgesse a Seattle, stuzzicava la scrittrice già da un po’. Così, dopo la stesura del romanzo “Rapiti”, è nato un nuovo personaggio: il detective Joe Spark. Joe Spark è un uomo che di mestiere fa l’avvocato penalista a Seattle. Ha quarantanove anni, alto, capelli ricci, nero corvino, e un paio di penetranti occhi azzurri. Vive sulla baia di Seattle in un bellissimo paesino, Alki. Joe ama il buon cibo, detesta la tecnologia e apprezza le belle donne, sebbene gli manchi il tempo per fare il Don Giovanni. Spesso e volentieri s’improvvisa detective, come in questo romanzo.Nasce, quindi, la nuova serie dal titolo “Le indagini dell’avvocato Joe Spark”. Il genere del thriller legale ha sempre affascinato Marcella Nardi perché i casi si svolgono dentro e attorno ai tribunali, luoghi dove si incarna l’atavico concetto che in un’aula di giustizia, in un processo, vince, ahimè, chi ha la miglior favella…Il grande Cicerone insegna! In questo primo romanzo, Joe Spark incappa in un anziano signore dai modi strani che, dopo il pensionamento e la morte della moglie, decide di darsi allo studio dei crimini per i quali, a suo dire, è stata condannata la persona sbagliata.Joe Spark viene irretito da quest’uomo in un "cold case", un omicidio avvenuto trent’anni prima, e soprannominato dalla stampa "Lo strangolamento all'ombra dello Space Needle". Una giovane donna era stata trovata strangolata nell’area che circonda la famosa torre di Seattle, lo Space Needle. A processo concluso, era stato condannato un giovane, un vicino di casa della ragazza.Ma fu fatta vera giustizia?Forse no...Lo strano signore convince Joe Spark ad aiutarlo nel riabilitare il nome del giovane, ingiustamente condannato e morto suicida poco dopo l’incarcerazione. Il vero assassino è ancora in libertà. Una serie di eventi inattesi travolge l’avvocato Spark durante le indagini. Emergono nuovi elementi che lo portano a cambiare idea su come agire dopo aver scoperto il vero assassino di quella giovane ragazza. Ma le sorprese non finiscono qui…
