STS-135 Shuttle Mission Imagery
Space shuttle Atlantis
high res (1.1 M) low res (67 K)
ISS028-E-015517 (10 July 2011) --- This is one of a series of images showing various parts of the space shuttle Atlantis in Earth orbit as photographed by one of three crew members -- half the station crew -- who were equipped with still cameras for this purpose on the International Space Station as the shuttle "posed" for photos and visual surveys and performed a back-flip for the rendezvous pitch maneuver (RPM). Seen at the rear of the cargo bay is the Raffaello multi-purpose logistics module, packed with supplies and spare parts for the orbiting outpost. A 400 millimeter lens was used to capture this particular series of images.
