Last August, the Space Shuttle Endeavour crew captured this shot of the International Space Station (ISS) against the backdrop of Planet Earth. During that trip [ http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/ sts118/mission_overview.html ] to the ISS [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap070625.html ], the space shuttle [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle ] crew re-supplied the station, repaired the station, and even built more [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap021217.html ] of the station. Its primary mission complete, the crew took the premier spaceship [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap060713.html ] on a tour around the premier space [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISS ] station. Pictured [ http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/shuttle/ sts-118/html/s118e09467.html ] during this inspection tour, the ISS is visible in front the Ionian Sea [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionian_Sea ]. The boot [ http://podiatry.curtin.edu.au/boot.html ] of Italy [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy ] is visible on the left, while the western coastlines of Greece [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece ] and Albania [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albania ] stretch across [ http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Newsroom/NewImages/ images.php3?img_id=17777 ] the top. The dorsal fin [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorsal_fin ] of the upside-down [ http://www.physlink.com/Education/AskExperts/ ae524.cfm ] shuttle orbiter pokes into the very top of the image. The Space Shuttle Discovery subsequently visited the ISS [ http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/shuttlemissions/ sts120/ ] in October while the next shuttle mission [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ List_of_space_shuttle_missions ] to the ISS is scheduled for next week.
