Mountains snapped from space



Although this looks like a picture of a typical mountain range
shot from an airplane, this is what the Himalayas look like
out the window the International Space Station.

The picture was taken with a hand-held 35 mm camera
from 230 miles above the earth.

It's interesting archeology to see how small pictures were back then. Even when you click through to the link, it's a tiny picture.

Dhaulagiri, seventh-highest peak in the world (26,794 ft/8167 m), dominates the skyline in this image taken by the Expedition 1 crew from the International Space Station using a high-magnification lens. Although it looks like a view from a high-altitude airplane, the photograph was taken out of the window of the Space Station from an orbital altitude of 200 nautical miles (370 km).
The pic was taken with a Kodak DCS460 Electronic Still Camera, which is a tad more than your standard 35 mm camera, with an 800 mm focal length.
