NASA Partnership Sends Earth Science Data to Africa
Downward-looking camera view of the area around Kruger National Park in northeastern South Africa, acquired Aug. 18, 2010, by the MISR instrument on NASA’s Terra spacecraft. The imaged area is 380 kilometers (236 miles) wide. The bright white feature above and to the right of image center is the Palabora Copper Mine, and the water body near upper right is Lake Massingir in Mozambique. Kruger National Park lies between these landmarks and stretches from north to south for some 350 kilometers (217 miles).
