Watch the past 40 years of urban sprawl from the city of Las Vegas in a time-lapse video as taken from Nasa.

This is a very interesting way to really see the effects of urbanization and sprawl in a metropolis. I would be very interested to see this same video for Houston and Detroit. I hope Nasa makes a few more of these.
