What Doesn't Stay in Vegas? Sprawl.

I found this pretty interesting. It's a short video taken from the Landsat 5 satellite, which was launched March 1, 1984. This is its view of Las Vegas and its growth over the past 28 years. The red patches are actually green space--mostly golf courses. You should see this in full screen. Pretty amazing stuff.
