  Title: Deforestation in Brazil as seen from STS-66 Atlantis
  Description:
  This near vertical photograph illustrates the differences in agricultural
  land patterns typically seen in many parts of southwestern Brazil, near the
  Bolivian border. The larger rectangular field patterns reflect a mature,
  fully developed agricultural environment. The smaller areas are less well
  defined and indicate new agricultural development.
