How NASA data can save lives from space
Wealth is visible from space. You can't see fancy cars or mega-mansions. Yet you can still make out wealth by comparing the patches of light that emanate brightly from some places, like the United States, to the expanses of darkness that blanket others, like Pakistan. From 249 miles away on the International Space Station, these areas of light and darkness are the only borders astronauts can really make out. For most astronauts, says NASA administrator Charles Bolden, the realization that such clear distinctions exist is overwhelming.
