Astronaut André Kuipers tweeted out the photo above as he orbited over the Bay Area on April 21. What a cool job. And I love that you can clearly see the swath that is Golden Gate Park.

    The orange sections are some of the evaporation ponds of the local salt companies. As the water evaporates the varying salinity favors different microbes and organisms, The orange color is caused by
