ISS027-E-032241 (18 May 2011) --- This view of the aft portion of the space shuttle Endeavour, including the orbital maneuvering system (OMS) pods and the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS) in the payload bay, was provided by an Expedition 27 crew member during a survey of the approaching STS-134 vehicle prior to docking with the International Space Station. As part of the survey and part of every mission's activities, Endeavour performed a back-flip for the rendezvous pitch maneuver (RPM). The image was photographed with a digital still camera, using a 400mm lens at a distance of about 600 feet (180 meters).
