Tanezrouft Basin in the Sahara Desert


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Tanezrouft Basin, which is one of the most barren parts of the Sahara Desert. 

Tanezrouft is located in southern Algeria and northern Mali. The region is often referred to as the “Land of Terror” due to its extreme lack of water and vegetation, as well as its scorching hot temperatures.
