STS-135 Shuttle Mission Imagery
Space shuttle Atlantis
high res (1.0 M) low res (84 K)
ISS028-E-015111 (10 July 2011) --- NASA astronaut Doug Hurley, STS-135 pilot, aims a range finder toward the International Space Station during rendezvous operations between the station and the space shuttle Atlantis. Whereas Hurley's hands are clearly seen, his face is largely obscured by darkness. This is one of a series of images showing various parts of Atlantis in Earth orbit as photographed by one of the six crewmembers on the station as the shuttle "posed" for photo and visual surveys and performed a back-flip for the rendezvous pitch maneuver (RPM). An 800 millimeter lens was used to capture this particular series of images.
