Modern Marvels: Desert Tech

It's hot, dry, and deadly - but it's also hard to ignore, with close to 40% of the earth classified as "desert."

Desert Tech transforms our concept of the desert from barren wasteland to an environment rich with possibility. In the Middle East, for example, desalinated seawater now fulfills water needs. Americans have created booming desert communities like Las Vegas, where the Hoover Dam produces hydroelectric power. Once desolate areas of California and Mexico are now agricultural due to irrigation, and the desert's abundant sunshine fosters both solar energy and wind power. Even more amazingly, desert technology may enable the future colonization of planets such as Mars.

Examining the innovation and technology that made life in the desert possible, Desert Tech opens our eyes to the vast expanses of the planet - and the universe - no longer considered uninhabitable.
