Yeah, I thought India was quite interesting too. It's easy to see from this picture what has been said for many years - USA uses more energy than anywhere else put together smiling

Russia has lines like veins. I'd presume that would be towns following rivers or trainlines. The later built during the Soviet period.

A classic image this week. Many of you will have seen it before, however that doesn't detract from any from its quality. An amazing satellite composite image of the earth at night, taken from hundreds of photographs. As the world's rich/poor divide grows ever larger, and developing nations are left behind in the dark ages (literally), you can see where the lines have been drawn. It's almost completely lights-out in Africa. Of notable worth is India, which lights up like a Christmas tree in the middle of some of the poorest countries in the world. We hope you'll enjoy this week's Image Of The Week.

Yes, it's taken over hundreds of images over a period of a couple of months. Thank you for your astute observation.

The picture is what is called a mosaic - a composition of many seperate photos. And Nut, India is the world's fastest growing country, it will overtake China in population in about 10 years and it is developing faster than almost anywhere else except China. It's where all the call centres are being outsourced to!

And for all you people in America, notice how much of the world isn't America - there's a whole world beyond your shores that doesn't give a shit about you lot!
