STS108-701-008 (5-17 December 2001) --- The vertical stabilizer of the Space Shuttle Endeavour almost appears to point out Emi Koussi Volcano in the Tibesti Mountains of Chad in Saharan Africa. Emi Koussi is one of the prominent volcanoes within the Tibesti massif of north-central Africa. The dark, shield-shaped volcanic edifice has developed over a mantle hot spot that rises beneath this region of the African continent.
