Image Caption: ISS007-E-12914 (18 August 2003) --- This view featuring Egypt's Great pyramids of Giza (right center) was taken by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). Giza is a royal burial place, commissioned and built by pharaohs during the fourth dynasty around 2550 BC. Today, Giza is a rapidly growing region of Cairo. Population growth in Egypt continues to soar, leading to new construction. New roads for large new developments are obvious in the desert hills northwest and southwest of the pyramids.
