ISS027-E-032085 (18 May 2011) --- This close-up view of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS) in space shuttle Endeavour’s 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 station crew member used a digital still camera with an 800mm focal length, as the two spacecraft were approximately 600 feet (180 meters) apart.
