Dubai's 'Map Of The World' Islands As Seen From Space

April 11, 2012


This is a shot of Dubai's man-made 'The World' archipelago (and Palm Islands, lower left) as photographed by André Kuiper aboard the International Space Station yesterday. As you can see, it serves as a reminder that, no matter how much money you throw at something, it still might turn out looking like shit.

Thanks to Melissa, who agrees Columbus could have drawn a better world map.

    Is Australia the one in the bottom right of the circle that looks like it has two rats running in a bowl with two mice jumping on them.

    Is this going to start sinking like the other designer islands they did?
