These Time-Lapse Videos From Space Show How Much The World Has Changed In 30 Years

Via Fastcoexist

In 1984, the desert in Al Jowf, Saudi Arabia, was empty. Then engineers discovered hidden aquifers—as deep as a kilometer underground—and started turning the sand into tomato and alfalfa farms. A NASA time-lapse video, stitched together from high-res satellite images, shows the transformation.

Google used its Earth Engine platform to build similar time-lapse images of the entire globe, showing how dramatically most of the world has changed in the last 32 years. On the Timelapse site, you can type in an address and watch megacities and mines sprawl as glaciers and lakes shrink.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
