Aswan High Dam as Seen from Space

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station used a high magnification lens to capture the details of the Aswan High Dam on the River Nile in southern Egypt. The project was started in 1960 and completed in 1970, and it is one of the largest earthen embankment dams in the world.
