Description ISS010-E-08224 (22 November 2004) --- Mount Olympus, Greece is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 10 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). Mount Olympus is the highest peak (2917 meters) in Greece, as well as the mountain chain that runs north into Bulgaria and south, via the Cyclades Islands, into Turkey. In this winter view, Olympus is the only peak with a dusting of snow?perhaps for this reason its name in classical Greek means ?the luminous one.? In Greek mythology the peak was inhabited by the Twelve Olympians, the most famous gods of the ancient Greeks. North of Mount Olympus lies Macedonia, the homeland of Alexander the Great. Climbing the mountain is a favorite tourist activity today. The slopes of the peaks of Olympus and its neighboring peaks drop sheer into the Thermaikos Gulf, a northern arm of the Aegean Sea. White cirrus clouds obscure the shoreline near the city of Thessaloniki. This major port is spread along the shores of a small and well protected bay at the north end of the gulf. On the plains inland of the Olympus chain lie a lake, on the Aliakmon River, and the town of Larisa, at the focus point of a series of transport routes.

Description ISS009-E-11537 (12 June 2004) --- Athens, Greece is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 9 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). This photo includes areas of new construction or renovation for the Olympic Games, such as the Faliro Coastal Zone Olympic Complex and Helliniko Olympic Complex. The image also demonstrates the control of bounding mountain ranges (Mts. Aigeleos and Hymettos) on the western and southern expansion of the Athens urban area. Athens is located in the Central Plains region of Attica in eastern Greece. The large basin in which Athens is located was formed by faulting and has accumulated thick deposits of clays and alluvium.

Description S118-E-09467 (19 Aug. 2007) --- The International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by a STS-118 crewmember on the Space Shuttle Endeavour following the undocking of the two spacecraft, which occurred at 6:56 a.m. (CDT) on Aug. 19, 2007. The image was acquired through one of the crew cabin windows, looking back over the length of the shuttle. Endeavour had undocked from the station, and the crew had begun late inspection of the orbiter?s Thermal Protection System (wing leading edges, nosecap, and belly tiles) prior to landing. The late inspection is performed using sensors mounted on the Orbiter Boom Sensor System (OBSS) in order to assess whether micrometeorite or orbiting debris impacts had compromised the Thermal Protection System of the shuttle while it was docked with the station. This oblique image was acquired almost one hour after late inspection activities had begun. The sensor head of the OBSS is visible at top left. The entirety of the orbital outpost is visible at bottom center, set against the backdrop of the Ionian Sea approximately 330 kilometers below it. Other visible features of the southeastern Mediterranean region include the toe and heel features of Italy?s ?boot? at lower left, and the western coastlines of Albania and Greece extend across the center. Further towards the horizon, the Aegean and Black Seas are also visible.

Description STS096-330-004 (30 May 1999) --- Astronaut Tamara E. Jernigan, mission specialist, is backdropped over the Aegian Sea as she handles the American-built crane which she later helped to install on the International Space Station (ISS) during the May 30 space walk. Jernigan's feet are anchored to a mobile foot restraint connected to the Discovery's Canadian-built remote manipulator system (RMS). Jernigan was joined by astronaut Daniel T. Barry for the lengthy extravehicular activity (EVA). Parts of Greece, Turkey and the Dardenelles are visible some 171 nautical miles below the docked tandem of Discovery and the ISS.
