STS109-E-5057 (3 March 2002) --- One of the solar panels of the Hubble Space Telescope is pictured 350 miles above Pacific Ocean clouds Southwest of Mexico during capture operations. Astronaut Nancy J. Currie, mission specialist, was in control of the Shuttle's remote manipulator system (RMS) robotic arm and astronaut Scott D. Altman, mission commander, was at the controls of the shuttle during capture and latch activities. The crew used a digital still camera to record a series of images documenting the fourth docking of a shuttle to the giant telescope during its tenure in space.
