Description

This image of the International Space Station with the docked Europe's ATV Johannes Kepler and Space Shuttle Endeavour was taken by ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli from Soyuz TMA-20 following its undocking on 24 May 2011.

The pictures are the first of a Shuttle docked to the Space Station from the perspective of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft. On the Soyuz were Russian cosmonaut and Expedition 27 commander Dmitry Kondratyev, ESA's Paolo Nespoli and NASA astronaut Cady Coleman. Paolo and Cady were both flight engineers. The three landed in Kazakhstan later that day, completing 159 days in space.
