Image Caption: STS028-073-056 Grand Island and Platte River, Nebraska, U.S.A. August 1989
In the Platte River Valley near the junction of the Wood River and the Platte River, Grand Island is apparent in this west-looking, low-oblique photograph. The city is a major manufacturing and shopping center in this rich agricultural area of central Nebraska. Farm implements, flour mills, packing houses, and dairies are the major industries in the city. Interstate Highway 80 (barely discernible) traverses west-east just south of the city.
