Sand dunes and skyscrapers meet in the United Arab Emirates. This country became a unified
nation less than 50 years ago, but it has a long and rich history—not to mention a uniquely
future-confronting mission. Join Popular Science as you journey to the top of Burj Khalifa, the
largest tower in the world, and learn about this modern engineering marvel. Back on the ground,
visit Masdar City, which is planning an environmentally sustainable future in the desert. Then,
rollick with flamingos and falcons at wildlife reserves to learn about the varied
ecosystems of the U.A.E.
