Stardust Implosion::The Stardust Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, USA

The Stardust Resort & Casino was a historic casino resort located on 63 acres along the famed Las Vegas Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The original resort was conceived and built by Tony Cornero, though he died in 1955 before construction was completed. When the hotel opened, it had the largest casino in Nevada, the largest swimming pool in Nevada and the largest hotel in the Las Vegas area.

The Stardust officially closed at 12:00pm (Pacific Time) on November 1, 2006. It was imploded on March 13, 2007, around 2:33 A.M. Later this year, construction will begin on Echelon Place, which will replace The Stardust.
