STS073-716-083 Kansas River Valley and Manhattan, Kansas, U.S.A. October 1995
The Kansas River Valley and Manhattan are apparent in this east-looking, low-oblique photograph. Manhattan (center of photograph) sits at the confluence of the south-flowing Big Blue River and the east-flowing Kansas River. A trade and processing center for this rich farm area, its industries also include dress pattern production, food processing, and truck farming. Much of the economy is dependent on Kansas State University and nearby Fort Riley Army Base. Visible are Tuttle Creek Reservoir north of Manhattan and the northern extension of the grass-covered, rolling terrain of the Flint Hills to the south.
