An image snapped from the Space Shuttle Endeavor shows the Sinai Peninsula (left) and the Strait of Tiran. The finger of water in the middle is the Gulf of Aqaba; the bulge in the lower right is the Red Sea. Egypt and Saudi Arabia plan to build a 32-kilometer (20-mile) bridge across the bottom of the gulf.
