Astronaut Says Los Angeles's Flaws Are Visible From Space

New, 88 comments

Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield is living on the International Space Station, orbiting the earth, and taking incredible photos of the views. The photo he took of Los Angeles yesterday is the perfect thing to gawk at on this wet Friday morning, although even the nice Canadian astronaut has to make urban planning cracks: "The grey of pavement and dense population is visible from Earth orbit."
