NASA Dubai Dubai and After 34 Years Photos

NASA Showed How Much Dubai Has Changed in the Past 34 Years and OMG

We could look at images of the Middle East from Space all day but this new shot of Dubai, in particular, is incredible.

Forbes highlighted Gifs from NASA, identifying how much the likes of Beijing, Las Vegas and Dubai have transformed in such a short amount of time, but the latter was the most impressive.

"Dubai in the United Arab Emirates has changed in 34 years," the article reads. "From 1984 to 2017 the city has grown from 350,000 people to just over 3 million people. With the city growth, you can see just how much Dubai has altered their coastline, adding artificial land, buildings, and ports along the Persian Gulf."

In just a flicker you'll see additions such as the Palm islands and plenty of buildings popping up inland.

With lots more planned, we can't wait to see what it'll look like in another 34 years.
