  Title: Nile River, Lake Nasser, North Sudan and Lower Egypt
  Description:
  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.
