NASA photo error puts Mount Everest in India
Everest, which is 8,848 metres (29,028 feet) high, is an sought-after photographic target for astronauts in orbit but is tricky to capture, according to astronaut Ron Garan, who lived on the International Space Station last year.
KATHMANDU: The world's highest mountain should not be hard to spot but American space agency NASA has admitted it mistook a summit in India for Mount Everest, which straddles the border of Nepal and China.

The agency said on its website that Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko's snap from the International Space Station, 230 miles (370 kilometres) above Earth, showed Everest lightly dusted with snow. The picture spread rapidly via Twitter and was picked up by media around the world, including the US-based magazine The Atlantic, astronomy website Space.com and US cable news channel MSNBC.

And yet, we are to believe them that they are 100 percent certain, that absolutely nothing is going to happen in December.

Just so those who don't understand why this is even worth mentioning....that's a pretty big error.

Whether NASA forgot where Mt. Everest was located or they just got confused on what part of the planet they were photographing...says a lot.
