Some time ago I remember blogging that if I ruled the world I would spend my spare time hanging out in a space station with a ‘cupola’, gazing out over the world and listening to music. It seems that astronauts on the space station, while clearly failing in their ambitions of global domination, are doing exactly the same thing. Hence this awe-inspiring picture of Italy at night. The BBC has the story (such as it is). There is no story here, but the picture is just astounding.
