Abu Dhabi Sheikh Carves His Name So Large, It’s Visible from Space

When it comes to wealth, there’s rich and there’s “I can see my name from space” rich.

Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, a member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family, carved his name — in giant 1000 meter letters — into the desert of an United Arab Emirates island he owns. His sand namesake is so massive that the H, the first A and part of the M have been turned into waterways.

It may be upside-down when viewed from a normal east-west perspective, but who cares about such things when it’s visible from space?
