Description:Storm Clouds - First Space Station Image - NASA Solarsystem Collection
"A mass of storm clouds was observed and recorded from the International Space Station (ISS) by Expedition 1 crew members. The picture, made with an Electrical Still Camera (ESC), was the first Earth observation still image downlinked by the three-man crew. Expedition 1 crew members were cosmonaut Sergei Krikalev, flight engineer; astronaut William Shepherd, mission commander; and cosmonaut Yuri Gidzenko, Soyuz commander. Because the station's communication system was still under construction, the image files had to be compressed at high levels for downlink, resulting in the loss of information."
