Final Night of the Space Shuttle | Stuck in Customs




Final Night of the Space Shuttle | Flickr – Photo Sharing!.

I was completely soaked after laying in mosquito-invested waters for an uncomfortably long time. At one point, a concerned French news reporter came up to me and said, “Excuse me, but you’re quite covered in bugs.” It must have been pretty bad for him to come over and say that… I think perhaps he thought I was dead because I stayed in the same position for so long, trying to zen-focus on the shot. This is the Space Shuttle Atlantis, in case you do not know. It’s also the final space shuttle launch, ever. So, it’s incredibly special, and I’m happy I got to spend time with the ship on its final night.

Historic Pairing: Shuttle Docked to the ISS

Endeavour docked to ISS

June 7, 2011 — It’s been imaged in artists’ renderings, but never before in actual photos from another spacecraft: the sight of a space shuttle berthed at theĀ International Space Station. This view of shuttle Endeavour, taken by Italian astronaut Paulo NespoliĀ from aboard a Russian Soyuz capsule on May 23, is the culmination of 36 space shuttle missions to build the outpost over the past 12 years. NASA wanted the shot before it retires the shuttle fleet after one final mission in July.
