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 STS073-708-089 (20 OCTOBER - 5 NOVEMBER 1995) --- As evidenced by this 70mm photograph from the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia, international borders have become easier to see from space in recent decades. This, according to NASA scientists studying the STS-73 photo collection, is particularly true in arid and semi-arid environments. The scientists go on to cite this example of the razor-sharp vegetation boundary between southern Israel and Gaza and the Sinai. The nomadic grazing practices to the south (the lighter areas of the Sinai and Gaza, top left) have removed most of the vegetation from the desert surface. On the north side of the border, Israel uses advanced irrigation techniques in Israel, mainly "trickle irrigation" by which small amounts of water are delivered directly to plant roots. These water-saving techniques have allowed precious supplies from the Jordan River to be used on farms throughout the country. Numerous fields of dark green can be seen in this detailed view. Scientists say this redistribution of the Jordan River waters has increased the Israeli vegetation cover to densities that approach those that may have been common throughout the Mid-East in wetter early Biblical times. A small portion of the Mediterranean Sea appears top right.

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 STS085-505-078 (7 - 19 August 1997) --- This large-format photograph, taken from the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Discovery with a 250mm lens, shows most of Lebanon, from the Israeli border to just south of Tripoli. The main distinction is that between the forested coastal mountain ranges which receive rainfall regularly off the Mediterranean, and the yellow-brown "rainshadow" deserts inland (east) of the mountains. Damascus, capital of Syria lies just outside the view bottom right. The biblical and classical cities of Acre (bottom), Tyre, Sidon and Beirut (top, on promontory) all lie on the coast. The Bekaa valley and the Litani River lie inland of the Lebanon Mountains east of Beirut. The agricultural area in the south of the photograph is part of Israel and borders the Golan Heights.

Description STS106-713-002 (19 September 2000) --- One of the STS-106 crew members on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis, 204 nautical miles above Earth, used a handheld 70mm camera to photograph this image featuring the Sea of Galilee and part of the Mediterranean coast. Also known as Lake Tiberius and other names, the body of water is the only natural fresh-water lake in Israel. It borders on the Golan Heights on its east side. The port of Haifa is visible on the Mediterranean coast. The large agriculture projects on the Israeli side of Galilee are irrigated by the lake and the Jordan River.

Description STS110-738-052 (8-19 April 2002) --- The major portion of the 180-mile (290 kilometers) long Gulf of Suez (center of the image) can be seen in this north-looking view, captured on film by one of the STS-110 crewmembers on board the Space Shuttle Atlantis . The Gulf of Suez is considered to be one of the most important water transportation routes in the world, connecting the Mediterranean Sea (upper portion of the image) through the Suez Canal (mostly covered by clouds) with the Red Sea (not visible on the image) and the Indian Ocean. To the gulf's right (east), the rugged landscape of the Sinai Peninsula can be seen. The 100 mile (160 kilometers) long Gulf of Aqaba, which is part of the Great Rift Valley of Eastern Africa, is discernible at the lower right of the image. Near the upper right portion of the image, a distinct line marking the border between Israel and Egypt can be seen. To the left (west) of the Gulf of Suez, are the Western Desert and the Nile River Valley and Delta of eastern Egypt. The tail of the Space Shuttle is at the right center of the image.
