Caption

La Cumbre volcano summit crater, Galapagos, seen from the International Space Station (ISS). This volcano, the most active in the Galapagos Islands, is on Fernandina Island. La Cumbre volcano rises 1495 metres above the sea (top left and bottom right), and its summit caldera is 850 metres deep and 5-6 kilometres wide. Water forms a lake at the bottom of the caldera and vegetation (green) grows in the fertile volcanic soil. The Galapagos Islands, found in the Pacific Ocean, are the tops of volcanoes that formed on the seabed 2000 metres below. The ISS orbits the Earth at an altitude of around 380 kilometres. Photographed on 6 July 2002.
