Description ISS008-E-19233 (25 March 2004) --- This image featuring the Betsiboka estuary on the northwest coast of Madagascar was taken by an Expedition 8 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). The Betsiboka estuary is the mouth of Madagascar?s largest river and one of the world?s fast-changing coastlines. Nearly a century of extensive logging of Madagascar?s rainforests and coastal mangroves has resulted in nearly complete clearing of the land and fantastic rates of erosion. After every heavy rain, the bright red soils are washed from the hillsides into the streams and rivers to the coast. Astronauts describe their view of Madagascar as ?bleeding into the ocean?. One impact of the extensive 20th century erosion is the filling and clogging of coastal waterways with sediment ? a process that is well illustrated in the Betsiboka estuary. In fact, ocean-going ships were once able to travel up the Betsiboka estuary, but must now berth at the coast.

Description STS79-E-5390 (24 September 1996) --- Madagascar, off the east coast of Africa, is almost too large to fit into a single frame, but it has long provided NASA astronauts with interesting panoramas as it spans across the horizon, during Flight Day 9.

Description STS087-752-035 (19 November ? 5 December 1997) --- This out-the-window view shows the Autonomous Extravehicular Activity Robotic Camera Sprint (AERCam Sprint) free-flying in the vicinity of the cargo bay of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. The AERCam Sprint is a prototype free-flying television camera that could be used for remote inspections of the exterior of the International Space Station (ISS). This view, backdropped over southern Madagascar, was taken during this flight's second Extravehicular Activity (EVA), on December 3, 1997.
