Image Caption:
A sweeping view of the Red Sea region from the Sinai Peninsula to
southern Sudan (S31- 71-045). The difference between this view
and similar views taken in 1966 (during Gemini XI) is the ex-
istence of Lake Nasser, the resultant of the construction of the
Aswan High Dam, completed in 1971. This oblique view also in-
cludes the payload bay of the Shuttle with the Hubble Space Tele-
scope before it's deploy.
