London from Space



Superb photos taken by Andre Kuipers  on the International Space Station. It gives an idea of how crowded is our little island and the sheer size of the city of London. The ring of light running through the green belt is the M25, the world's largest ring road. And I live under the arrow in the Medway Towns complex.

  7. Couldn't agree with you more John, regarding our poor overcrowded island; this is actually quite sobering.
