    The original finding aid described this as: Description: The Aswan High Dam, 2.5 miles across and 364 feet high, (24.0N, 33.0E) completed in 1971, was constructed to supply cheap hydroelectric power to both Egypt and Sudan by impounding, controlling and regulating the flood waters of the Nile River in Lake Nasser, the world's second largest artificial lake. The lake extends over 500 miles in length, covers an area of some 2000 square miles and is as much as 350 feet deep at the face of the dam. This frame was selected by the crew of STS-46 for release.
