ISS and Space Shuttle...

Reader Paul H. sends this along: a Russian Soyuz captured photos of the ISS and the space shuttle Endeavour together.  We don't normally see photos like this, as generally they're either photos of ISS taken from the space shuttle, or vice versa.

Here are many more photos of this encounter and a nice story on it.

  1. Great pictures! But I really have a hard time getting excited about the ISS and shuttle program as some great achievement. So many billions of dollars into it and they are just back and forth in low Earth orbit. Now these guys are impressive...
