Description ISS005-E-09451 (11 August 2002) --- Jericho, Israel is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 5 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). NASA experts on space-to-earth photos researched the background of the area and the details of the picture and supplied the following information: commonly known as ?the oldest city in the world?, Jericho is an important historical, cultural, and political center located to the northwest of the Dead Sea. The city is perhaps best known from the Biblical account of a great victory over its Canaanite citizens by the Israelite leader Joshua, wherein the walls of the heavily fortified city were destroyed with divine assistance during the year 1400 BC. The site of ancient Jericho (known today as Tell es-Sultan), has been the focus of several archaeological excavations to investigate the Biblical account. The original settlement was built on a hill, or ?tell?. The results of these excavations suggest that the walls of Tell es-Sultan have been built and rebuilt many times, due mainly to collapse caused by earthquakes common in the region.

Description S115-E-07595 (19 Sept. 2006) --- A crew member aboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis recorded this digital still image of part of the eastern Mediterranean area. The Gulf of Suez, Gulf of Aqaba, Dead Sea, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem all are visible in the upper left quadrant. Jordan is in the lower left quadrant. The Golan Heights and Haifa appear in the lower right quarter.

Description STS079-810-048 Central Highland Region, Tel Aviv, Israel September 1996 Situated on the narrow, but fertile coastal plain, the largest city of Israel, Tel Aviv, is located midway between the center and bottom center of the image in this east-looking view. Tel Aviv is the major commercial, financial, communications, industrial, and cultural center in Israel. Construction, textiles, clothing, pharmaceuticals, electrical and electronic appliances, and printed materials are the main industries. The city is also a popular tourist resort with wide, attractive beaches. Just to the east of Tel Aviv are the Central Highlands, an area of hills and several small valleys. In the upper left and upper center of the image, a portion of the Jordan River Rift Valley and the Dead Sea are visible.

Description STS079-810-049 Haifa, Lake Tiberias, Israel September 1996 The third largest city in Israel, the coastal city of Haifa, situated midway between the center and bottom center of the image, is visible in this southeast-looking view. Haifa is the main port of Israel and is the country?s industrial center as well. Major industries include oil refineries, food processing, shipbuilding, chemicals, electrical equipment, steel, and textiles. In the upper left corner of the image, the pear-shaped freshwater Lake Tiberias (Sea of Galilee) can be seen. Lake Tiberias is 14 miles (23 km) long and has a maximum width of 8 miles (13 km). The lake has a maximum depth of 150 feet (46 meters) and covers an area of 64 square miles (165 square km). Lake Tiberias lies 680 feet (207 meters) below sea level and its bed forms part of the Dead Sea Rift Valley. At one time in the geologic past, Lake Tiberias was part of a great inland sea that extended from the Hula marshes in Northern Israel to a point 40 miles (64 km) south of the Dead Sea. The lake is completely encircled by beach, and bordered by escarpments and plains. Tourism and fishing are the main industries around the lake.

Description STS101-717-004 (19-29 May 2000) --- The STS-101 crew members recorded this image of the East Mediterranean coast while Atlantis was docked with the International Space Station (see solar panel on the Russian-built functional cargo block (FGB) or Zarya). Featured in the 70mm frame are the Nile River delta, Red Sea and the Sinai Peninsula. The Gulf of Aqaba and Dead Sea are in the distant background.

Description STS109-708-024 (1-12 March 2002) --- The astronauts on board the Space Shuttle Columbia took this 70mm picture featuring the Sinai Peninsula and the Dead Sea Rift. The left side of the view is dominated by the great triangle of the Sinai peninsula, which is partly obscured by an unusual cloud mass on this day. The famous Monastery of St. Catherine lies in the very remote, rugged mountains in the southern third of the peninsula (foreground). The Gulf of Aqaba is a finger of the Red Sea bottom center, pointing north to the Dead Sea, the small body of water near the center of the view. According to NASA scientists studying the STS-109 photo collection, the gulf and the Dead Sea are northerly extensions of the same geological rift that resulted in the opening of the Red Sea . The Gulf of Suez appears in the lower left corner. Northwest Saudi Arabia occupies the lower right side of the view, Jordan and Syria the right and top right, and the Eastern Mediterranean Sea the top left. Thin white lines of cloud have formed along the coastal mountains of southern Turkey and stretch across the top of the view near the Earth's limb.

Description STS112-702-002 (7-18 October 2002) --- Egypt's triangular Sinai Peninsula lies in the center of this view, photographed from the Space Shuttle Atlantis, with the dark greens of the Nile delta lower right. In this southwesterly view, the Red Sea, with its characteristic parallel coastlines, stretches toward the top. At the bottom of the image, the Suez Canal appears as an irregular line joining the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea (lower left). The Dead Sea in central Israel, with its light blue salt ponds at the south end, appears on the left margin.
