ISS01-E-6128 (9 February 2001) --- Atlantis was photographed from the International Space Station (ISS) prior to link-up with international outpost at 10:50 a.m. (CST), Feb. 9, 2001, as the two craft flew over the Western Pacific northeast of New Guinea. About ninety minutes later, hatches were swung open between Atlantis and the ISS, enabling the two crews to greet each other and transfer critical gear before re-closure later in preparation for the first (Feb. 10) of three planned space walks to help in the installation and hookup of Destiny on the Station. The photograph was taken with a digital still camera.
