ISS006-E-35516 (5 March 2003) --- This photo of Palm Island Resort was taken by an Expedition 6 crewmember onboard the International Space Station (ISS). This man-made structure in the shape of a palm tree, just 1 mile off the coast from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is scheduled to be complete by 2006. It will have 17 huge fronds surrounded by a crescent-shaped breakwater. This island is being built from 2.8 billion cubic feet of land dredged from the approach channel to the emirate�s Jebel Ali port, which is being deepened to 17 meters (56 feet). Sediments in the water from dredging activity can be seen near the port.
