That's kinda weird.

Remember me going on about the Michael Flynn books about the private space program?

Well, in the books the lead contractor was a Brazilian aerospace company, and the whole SSTO program was being developed on the island of Fernando de Noronha; probably a third of the first book takes place on the island, and the author describes it in some detail.

Well, it showed up in the news this morning as the place where they're stacking the floaters from the Air France... uh... accident.

In earlier times, Fernando de Noronha was a favorite place for pirates to careen their vessels.
