Photos: Portraits of Shuttle Endeavour at Space Station

Shuttle Endeavour and Space Station Take Center Stage

NASA

The space shuttle Endeavour and International Space Station shine front and center in this amazing (and historic) photo of the two vehicles docked together as seen from a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Astronaut Paolo Nespoli snapped this view and others during the first-ever photo session of a shuttle docked at the space station.

From a Distance

This photo of shuttle Endeavour at the International Space Station shows a rare look at the orbiter's underbelly while it is attached to the orbiting lab. This photo is one of the first-ever views of a NASA shuttle docked at the space station and was taken during Endeavour's final flight on May 23, 2011 by astronaut Paolo Nespoli on a nearby Soyuz spacecraft.

This historic photo of the International Space Station and the docked shuttle Endeavour flying together 220 miles above Earth was taken by astronaut Paolo Nespoli from a departing Soyuz spacecraft on May 23, 2011. It is the first-ever view of a NASA shuttle at the space station and was taken during the final flight of Endeavour, STS-134.

The shuttle Endeavour appears tilted to one side in this view of it docked to the International Space Station taken on May 23, 2011 by Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli from a nearby Soyuz spacecraft. Nespoli's photos were the first ever to show a visiting NASA shuttle at the International Space Station.

This still from NASA TV shows the space shuttle Endeavour (at left) while it is docked at the International Space Station on May 23, 2011 during the shuttle's final spaceflight before being retired. A video camera on a Russian Soyuz spacecraft caught this view just after undocking. An astronaut on the Soyuz snapped more photos and video of the unprecedented sight at the International Space Station.
