Say Goodbye, Part 5

Today looks like a pretty dull day in Space Shuttle mission STS-135, so here are a couple of photos from yesterday. First up, a photo of Shuttle astronaut Ron Garan riding on the International Space Station's robotic arm while repairing that faulty fuel pump:

The second image is a lovely shot of the Atlantis cargo bay, as the crew gets ready to transfer supplies and parts from the Raffaello logistics module to the ISS:

It's hard not to be impressed by these pictures, and by the sophistication and scale of the technology that's part of the Shuttle and the ISS.

As always, click on the pictures to see them at the full size of the images on this blog. Follow the image credit links to be taken to the full size image files.
