Summary

Description
Deutsch: Der Himalaya von oben gesehen
English: Himalaya from the International Space Station. In addition to looking heavenward, NASA helps the world see the Earth in ways no one else can. Astronauts on board the International Space Station recently took advantage of their unique vantage point to photograph the Himalayas, looking south from over the Tibetan Plateau. The perspective is illustrated by the summits of Makalu [left (8,462 metres; 27,765 feet)], Everest [middle (8,848 metres; 29,035 feet)] , Lhotse [middle (8,516 metres; 27,939 feet)] and Cho Oyu [right (8,201 metres; 26,906 feet)] -- at the heights typically flown by commercial aircraft.
Español: El Himalaya visto desde la Estación Espacial Internacional. La planicie tibetana en primer término. Se pueden apreciar las cumbres de Makalu (8 462 metres, en la izquierda), de el Everest (8 848 m, en el centro), el Lhotse (justo a la derecha del Everest, 8516 m) y el Cho Oyu (a la derecha del todo, 8 201 m de altitud).
Français : L'Himalaya vu de la Station spatiale internationale. La NASA ne fait pas que regarder les étoiles, mais utilise aussi ses points de vues uniques pour observer la terre. Cette vue de l’Himalaya a été prise depuis la Station spatiale internationale, avec le plateau tibétain au premier plan. On peut voir les sommets du Makalu (8 462 mètres, à gauche), de l'Everest (8 848 m, au milieu), du Lhotse (juste à droite de l'Everest, 8516 m) et du Cho Oyu (tout à droite, 8 201 m d'altitude). L'altitude de ces sommets correspond aux altitudes de vol des avions de ligne.
Suomi: Himalaja kansainväliseltä avaruusasemalta kuvattuna
日本語: 国際宇宙ステーションから撮影したヒマラヤ山脈。チベット高原から南方を見た時の図。エベレストが中央付近に見える。
Italiano: L'Himalaya fotografata dalla stazione spaziale internazionale, con l'altopiano del Tibet in primo piano. Si possono notare le cime dei monti Makalu (8462 metri, in alto a sinistra), Everest (8848 metri, in centro), Lhotse (8516 metri, appena sopra l'Everest sulla foto) e Cho Oyu (8201 metri, a destra). Queste altezze corrispondono a quelle raggiunte dagli aerei di linea.
中文: 從國際太空站上拍攝的喜瑪拉雅山脈照片。除了往天空方向觀看喜瑪拉雅山之外,美國太空總署協助世人從一個普通人無法達成的角度拍攝了喜瑪拉雅山脈。國際太空站上的太空人利用了他們特殊的優勢拍攝了這張照片。這張照片的角度是從西藏高原往南看的。
