It has long been said that the Great Wall of China can be seen from the moon. No untruer words have ever been spoken, but can you see it from the International Space Station?
And if so, what else can be seen (plus, see a slideshow of incredible images of Earth from space)? http://goo.gl/N4eRXs

Matilda, a 5-year-old eastern bongo, gave birth to a male calf on April 12. The calf is the third offspring for Matilda and 6-year-old male Tambo.
Eastern bongos are critically endangered, with fewer than 500 believed to remain in the wild in their native Kenya, where habitat destruction and poaching are their most immediate threats. Matilda and Tambo were recommended to breed by the ' (AZA) Bongo Species Survival Plan (SSP), which seeks to maintain a self-sustaining, genetically diverse population in North American zoos and has reintroduced captive-born bongos to eastern Africa. Zoo Atlanta is an active participant in the SSP and has supported bongos and their habitats through the Mabel Dorn Reeder Conservation Endowment Fund.
