ISS022-E-030482 (18 Jan. 2010) --- An Expedition 22 crew member onboard the International Space Station took this image of the 260-year-old city Port-au-Prince on Jan. 18, 2010 when they could view the area. This was a few days after the major Haitian earthquake occurred and brought devastation to Port-au-Prince, Carrefour, and the surrounding region. The Toussaint Louverture International Airport, clearly visible on the north side of Port-au-Prince, is the central focal point of incoming international aid. The population of Port-au-Prince is estimated to be between 2.5 to 3 million people. The photo was taken with an 800 mm lens setting.
