 Earth from Space: Siberian ‘gecko’ .

The gecko-shaped body of water featured in this Envisat radar image was formed by the Bratsk Reservoir in southeastern Siberia, Russia. The reservoir was formed in the 1960s by damming the Angara River to provide hydroelectric power. The dam, 125 m high and 4417 m wide, was built near the city of Bratsk (white area in the upper left). Agricultural crops can be seen along the southwestern side of the reservoir, including grains, potatoes and vegetables. (via ESA)

Mission Specialist Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the  confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever  been. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit  or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test  maneuvers inside and above Challenger’s payload bay, McCandless went  “free-flying” to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This  stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the  black and blue of Earth and space. (02/12/1984)
