A NASA picture taken from the ISS showing the Korean Peninsula in the night reveals a shocking truth – people in North Korea live in darkness. Although cities and countries have been marked in the picture below, North Korea’s state of affairs is conspicuous. The brightly lit China (left and top-left) and South Korea (bottom right) in the picture clearly show that the countries around Kim Jong-un’s reclusive nation are prosperous. In fact were it not marked (as is in the featured picture), you would not have been able to identify North Korea.
