The Three Gorges Dam spans the Yangtze River in east-central China, and is the world’s largest power station in terms of installed capacity, with its vast reservoir stretching for 660 km. Since its completion in 2008, over 1.3 million people were relocated; 13 cities, 140 towns, and 1350 villages were submerged; and the cost of the project exceeded $40 billion. According to the BBC News, landslides and bank collapses upriver from the dam may force authorities to move another 100,000 people. The image was acquired June 24, 2009, and is located at 30.8 degrees north latitude, 111 degrees east longitude.
