Berlin at Night

Commander Chris Hadfield continues to send awe-inspiring photographs back from the ISS. This is the city of Berlin at night, in which you can still detect the historical divide between East and West due to the different lighting. Berlin has more old-fashioned gas streetlamps than any other city in the world, and they give off a yellowish glow. In the past few years, the city's plan to replace the gas lamps with more efficient electrical lights has sparked a controversy with those who want to preserve the city's history.
