I came across this video (attached below) that shows earth at night. It uses new aerospace technologies to detect various light sources across the globe. The aerospace instrument can detect electricity from massive cities such as New York as well as oiling rigs in the Middle East which emit lighting as well. I thought this offered a unique view of the world as never seen before. In addition, I can’t quite imagine how much data the telescope would collect in order to piece this scene together. The photos would be in high definition and there must be hundreds of thousands in order to complete the picture. I dug around a bit on NASA’s website to try and come across more information. Luckily, I was able to find an entire section devoted to this project (found at: http://npp.gsfc.nasa.gov/science/index.html). I urge everyone to check it out and let me know what you all think. Is it a waste of money or beneficial for science? Feel free to comment!
