Description STS109-E-5485 (7 March 2002) --- Two of Columbia's four spacewalkers--astronauts James H. Newman and Michael J. Massimino--participate in the first science instrument upgrade of the fourth Hubble Space Telescope (HST) servicing mission during the flight's fourth day of extravehicular activity (EVA). The two, with Newman on Columbia's remote manipulator system (RMS) robotic arm, remove the Faint Object Camera to make room for the new Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). This image was recorded with a digital still camera by one of the duo's crewmates on the aft flight deck.

Description S116-E-07663 (20 Dec. 2006) --- One of the STS-116 crewmembers onboard the Space Shuttle Discovery captured this picture of Aurora Borealis over Norway, Poland and Sweden, as the crew made preparations for a Dec. 22 landing. European Space Agency astronaut Christer Fuglesang onboard the shuttle noted the rarity of pictures over this area from shuttle missions, and especially pictures that included the Northern Lights. Fuglesang is from Sweden. The city lights of Copenhagen (bright cluster of lights in the middle left portion of the image), Stockholm (under the aurora on the far right side of the image), and Gdansk (in the center forefront) are seen. The formation of the aurora starts with the sun releasing solar particles. The Earth's magnetic field captures and channels the solar particles toward the Earth's two magnetic poles (north and south). As the solar particles move towards the poles they collide with the Earth's atmosphere, which acts as an effective shield against these deadly particles. The collision between the solar particles and the atmospheric gas molecule emits a light particle (photon). When there are many collisions the aurora is formed.

Description S69-40308 (20 JULY 1969) --- The deployment of the flag of the United States on the surface of the Moon is captured on film during the first Apollo 11 lunar landing mission. Here, astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, commander, stands on the left at the flag's staff. Astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., lunar module pilot, is also pictured. The picture was taken from film exposed by the 16mm Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) which was mounted in the Lunar Module (LM). While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Eagle" to explore the Sea of Tranquility region of the Moon, astronaut Michael Collins, command module pilot, remained with the Command and Service Modules (CSM) "Columbia" in lunar-orbit.

Description ISS012-E-11144 (11 Dec. 2005) --- Sierra Nevada, Spain is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 12 crew member on the International Space Station. According to scientists, the Sierra Nevada, part of the Betic Cordillera of southern Spain, was formed during the Alpine Orogeny (or mountain-building event) that also formed the European Alps to the east and the Atlas Mountains of northern Africa across the Mediterranean Sea to the south. The Sierra as observed today formed during the Tertiary Period (65 to 1.8 million years ago) during collision of the African and Eurasian continental plates. The former Tethys Sea also closed during this time period, the scientists say, and the Mediterranean Sea is the largest surviving remnant basin of the ancient Tethys. The Sierra Nevada in the Granada province of Spain is perhaps the southernmost skiing location in all of Europe. Veleta Peak, at an elevation of 3,398 meters above sea level, is a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders. The rapid transition from lofty ski runs to Mediterranean beaches within a few hours? drive has made the Sierra Nevada region popular for both outdoor and urban tourism. This photograph depicts the Veleta Peak region of the range and illustrates the sharp contrast between the snow capped mountains, adjacent dry lowlands to the west and north, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south.

Description JSC2000E02281 --- (12 April 1994) --- This 70mm frame, photographed through the aft flight deck windows of the Space Shuttle Endeavour, features the Space Radar Laboratory (SRL) payload in the cargo bay over ocean waters. The inset photo shows a portion of Rabaul, New Guinea which was acquired by the Spacebourne Imaging Radar-C/X-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SIR-C/X-SAR), also aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, on October 11, 1994, a little less than a month after a volcano eruption that displaced some 53,000 inhabitants. SRTM will also utilize the services of Endeavour.

Collins, mission commander, looks over a procedures checklist at the commander's station on the forward flight deck of the Space Shuttle Columbia on Flight Day 1. The most important event of this day was the deployment of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the world's most powerful X-Ray telescope. The photo was recorded with an electronic still camera (ESC).

Description S93-E-5130 (23 July 1999) --- An electronic still camera (ESC) aimed through Columbia's aft flight deck windows recorded this scene of a portion of the Chandra X-Ray Observatory during deployment operations. The primary duty of the STS-93 crew was to deploy the world's most powerful X-Ray telescope. It was also among the first actions of the crew, occurring just a few hours following Columbia's arrival in Earth orbit. This is one of a series of still photos recorded by the crew during the deployment of the 50,162 pound observatory.

Description STS090-351-009 (17 April - 3 May 1998) --- Three members of the Neurolab crew were photographed during off-duty time on the mid-deck aboard the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. Left to right are James A. (Jim) Pawelczyk, payload specialist, and astronauts Richard A. Searfoss, mission commander; and Richard M. Linnehan, payload commander. Linnehan is in the hatchway of the tunnel that connected the crew members to the Spacelab Science Module in Columbia's cargo bay. A "fish-eye" lens on a 35mm camera gives the scene a slightly distorted look. Five NASA astronauts and two payload specialists went on to spend a little more than 16-days in Earth-orbit in support of the Neurolab mission.

Description STS094-344-027 (1-17 July 1997) --- Astronaut Donald A. Thomas, mission specialist, observes an experiment in the glovebox aboard the Spacelab Science Module in the mid deck of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. Thomas is looking through an eye-piece of a camcorder and recording his observations on tape for post-flight analysis. Other cameras inside the glovebox are also recording other angles of the experiment or downlinking video to the experiment teams on the ground. The glovebox is thought of as a safety cabinet with closed front and negative pressure differential to prevent spillage and contamination and allow for manipulation of the experiment sample when its containment has to be opened for observation, microscopy and photography. Although not visible in this view, the glovebox is equipped with windows on top and each side for these observations.

Thomas, mission specialist, transport the Astro/Plant Generic Bioprocessing Apparatus (PGBA) to the Spacelab Science Module in the Space Shuttle Columbia's cargo bay, shortly after arriving on orbit. The PGBA was stored on the mid deck for transport, just as all experiments will be for flights of the International Space Station (ISS). The crew later installed the PGBA in the Expedite Processing of Experiments to Space Station (EXPRESS) rack for the duration of the flight before returning it to the mid deck for entry and landing.

Gernhardt, mission specialist, performs an observation at the Expedite Processing of Experiments to Space Station (EXPRESS) rack in the Spacelab Science Module aboard the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Columbia. The EXPRESS rack accommodates experiments compatible with the Shuttle mid deck, since the mid deck will be used to ferry payloads to the International Space Station (ISS). The Microgravity Sciences Laboratory (MSL-1) mission provides an opportunity to test and demonstrate this Space Station hardware. Shown here in the rack is the Astro/Plant Generic Bioprocessing Apparatus, used for studying the adaptation of higher plant systems to space flight.
