STS-97 Shuttle Mission Imagery

high res (0.5 M) low res (29 K)
S97-E-5115 (9 December 2000) --- This is one of a series of digital still camera photographs showing the International Space Station (ISS) during a fly-around by the Space Shuttle Endeavour. The 240-foot-long, 38-foot-wide solar array is the newest part and one of the most prominent components of the station. The solar array panels for the Zvezda Service Module are barely visible behind the newer, larger panels; and the panels for the Zarya or Functional Cargo Block (FGB) are visible as a thin line because of their angle toward the camera. Onboard ISS for about 40 days at the time of this photo were astronaut William M. Shepherd and cosmonauts Yuri P. Gidzenko and Sergei K. Krikalev. They arrived in early November aboard the Soyuz spacecraft, which is seen (bottom) docked to the Zvezda Service Module. Onboard the shuttle were STS-97 astronauts -- commander Brent W. Jett, Jr., pilot Mike Bloomfield and mission specialists Marc Garneau of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), Carlos I. Noriega and Joseph R. Tanner.
