This is a NASA view, co-produced by JAPAN and the US of A, of China's YELLOW RIVER or the HUANGHE.
This river has been the cause of more LIFE and DEATH than almost any river in the world, besides the mighty MISSISSIPPI in America and the VOLGA in Russia.
The Yellow River has changed it's course several times in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.
It gets it's name from the Tan or Yellow effluent that flows through it's channels.
It's is known as the "CRADLE of CHINESE CIVILIZATION."
Much HERALDED. Much DAMNED.
The people who line it's ever changing banks have truly come to know the meaning of the curse "MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES", for life on the HUANGHE is ever INTERESTING.
This river NEVER sleeps.
