STS-114 Shuttle Mission...

Description JSC2005-E-31383 (31 July 2005) --- Karl Hamelmann and Nicole Jordan, spacesuit engineers working in the Crew and Thermal Systems Division, EVA and Spacesuit Systems Branch, conduct a test which is instrumental in planning the upcoming spacewalk on STS-114 to extract protruding gap filler material on Discovery. The test was to evaluate the amount of damage inadvertent contact with the spacesuit helmet could cause to the Shuttle tiles.

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 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 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 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.
