Expanded European Union (EU). Satellite image of the EU (darker areas), including the new member states that joined on 1st May 2004. Ten countries joined the EU on this date: Poland, Latvia, Malta, Lithuania, Slovenia, Hungary, Slovakia, Estonia, Czech Republic and (Greek) Cyprus. This took the total number of member states to 25, and increased the population of the EU by 75 million to over 450 million. Romania and Bulgaria hope to join the EU in 2007. Notable non-members include Norway (top centre) and Switzerland (just below and left of centre). This image is a mosaic of images taken by the MODIS camera on board NASA's Terra satellite.
