Watching over us from above

Above,Tracy Caldwell-Dyson looks down upon the earth from the the Cupola of the International Space Station. The whole complex is quite an achievement. The final modules are being delivered right now by Space Shuttle Atlantis, which docked with the station today. The irony is that when our shuttle program ends in July, we'll have to hitch a ride with the Russians to get to the space station which we mostly transported and assembled with our shuttle fleet. Below, Dmitri Kondratyev and Paolo Nespoli take pictures in the Cupola, with visiting spacecraft visible in the background.
