Mount Everest from the ISS
November 3, 2003
This detailed image of Everest, the highest (29,035 feet, 8850 meters) mountain in the world, shows early morning light on the eastern Kangshung Face. The mountains appear to jump out of the picture because the image was taken with low sunlight using an electronic still camera equipped with an 800 mm lens. The image was taken in March 20, 2002, from the Space Station.
