This view featuring the southeastern Mediterranean and Egyptian/Sinai Peninsula/Israel border was photographed by an STS-107 crewmember onboard the Space Shuttle Columbia. EDITOR'S NOTE: On February 1, 2003, the seven crewmembers were lost with the Space Shuttle Columbia over North Texas. This picture was on a roll of unprocessed film later recovered by searchers from the debris.
