Embraced In Space: A Rare Glimpse Of The Shuttle And Space Station

Filed by KOSU News in Science.

Look closely, and you can see a rear view of Endeavor’s wings and engines as the space shuttle sits on top of the International Space Station. This image was taken May 23 by an astronaut on board the Russian Soyuz spacecraft as it headed back to Earth. It’s a never-before-seen perspective — the first-ever photos of the station-shuttle complex captured by a departing craft.

“All previous views have come from cameras on the station’s exterior, or from cameras used by the crew from windows inside the station,” says NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
