ISS022-E-066972 (17 Feb. 2010) --- This image is the first taken through a first of its kind "bay window" on the International Space Station, the seven-windowed Cupola. The image shows the Sahara Desert spread out through the array of windows. The Cupola will house controls for the station robotics and will be a location where crew members can operate the robotic arms and monitor other exterior activities.
