 December 7, 2001 --- This video contains footage of the approach of Space Shuttle Endeavour taken by a camera aboard the International Space Station. Having performed a successful rendezvous for STS-108, the shuttle has reached a point directly in line with the station. It has waited at a distance of a few hundred feet while the ISS crew commands the station's large solar arrays to an edge-on, or feathered, configuration, which is designed to minimize the risk of damage to their delicate surfaces from the shuttle's small thruster jets. Commander Dom Gorie informs Mission Control that the station's solar arrays appear to have reached the feathered configuration, and he is ready to guide the shuttle in for docking.
