Posted on by Greg Flanders. This entry was posted in Engaging Interests. Bookmark the permalink.

Greetings, Agent. As you may have heard, real gadgets and artifacts from spies and spy catchers have been “liberated” from the archives of the CIA, the FBI, and the National Reconnaissance Office. These artifacts—representing some of the crown jewels of historical and modern spycraft—are currently making their way towards the Pacific Science Center as part of the traveling exhibit, SPY: The Secret World of Espionage.
