FROM TEN MILES ALOFT THE RHINE LOOKS LIKE A RIVULET Professor Piccard's camera encompassed the sector of the stripling stream flowing east of the Walen See(Lake ofWallenstadt), Switzerland, visible in the upper left-hand corner. Just beyond the river in the center foreground a black splotch marks Sargans, avillage dominated bya12th-century castle. North of Walen See are the Churfirsten, a group of seven rugged peaks. The flaky white patches tothe upper right mark theSantis peak. The white bars along the river show how sand is banked on alternate sides of its curving course.
