Image Caption: Backdropped over eastern Egypt and Sudan, the Nile Niver and Lake Nasser, (22.5N, 32.0E) the Canadian built remote manipulator system (RMS) displays an array of witness plate material samples for evaluation in space environment. In this view of the Nile River, North Sudan and Lower Egypt, the lifegiving potential of this mighty river that has sustained this region for thousands of years has been enhanced in modern times by the building of Lake Nasser.
