  STS028-076-058 Lake Francis Case, South Dakota, U.S.A. August 1989
Lake Francis Case, 150 miles (242 kilometers) long, is visible in this east-looking, low-oblique photograph. Fort Randall Dam (not visible) that impounds the waters of Lake Francis Case was completed in 1952. The dam and lake provide hydroelectric power, water for irrigation, flood control, and recreation. The White River enters Lake Francis Case with white silt brought downstream from the badlands farther west. Visible to the north is the big bend of the Missouri River near which are center-pivot irrigation fields.
