I'm sure you've all heard the line that you can see Luxor beam from space. Marketing nonsense, I'm sure... and a real gem of one. Dr. Dave points us to a Tweet sent to us, from space, which debunk the myth that you can see Luxor's beam from space. The photos were taken by by Commander Chris Hadfield a Canadian Astronaut (aren't all Canadians space cadets?) who lives aboard the International Space Station, which show Las Vegas.
First, Vegas during daylight hours.
Second, Vegas at night.
No beam, just a blur of light from the entirety of the city. The myth has been officially busted. Friggin awesome.
Thanks Dr. Dave 702 @unlvgaming for the tweet tip!
