Summary
This program explains the surprisingly strong effect that street lighting has on our cities. In addition to being a powerful tool to prevent crime, more and better lighting has improved the sense of well-being and added new dimensions to the business and social activities of the city. But as a whole new world was created from lighting the darkness, the problem has turned from quality of light to the quantity. What are the consequences of too much light in our cities? Once we found our way by the stars. Does it matter that we can't see them anymore?
