ISS027-E-032533 (18 May 2011) --- This view of space shuttle Endeavour's forward section, including a partial view of the crew cabin, forward payload bay, docking mechanism and Canadarm, was provided by an Expedition 27 crew member during a survey of the approaching STS-134 vehicle prior to docking with the International Space Station. As part of the survey and part of every mission's activities, Endeavour performed a back-flip for the rendezvous pitch maneuver (RPM). The image was photographed with a digital still camera, using a 400mm lens at a distance of about 600 feet (180 meters).
