STS-109 Shuttle Mission Imagery

high res (1.2 M) low res (104 K)
STS109-E-5253 (4 March 2002) --- Astronaut Richard M. Linnehan, mission specialist, is about to wrap up the first phase of a seven-hour space walk in the cargo bay of the Space Shuttle Columbia. Linnehan's feet are anchored to a restraint on the end of the Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm. The piece of hardware putting on a bright glow in left foreground is the furled old solar array that astronauts Linnehan and John M. Grunsfeld, payload commander, earlier removed from Hubble Space Telescope. The old array is now latched in Columbia's cargo bay for return to Earth. The two went on to install the replacement starboard array. The image was recorded with a digital still camera.
