STS-127 RPM (R-Bar Pitch Maneuver) 800mm



Washington, DC, United States

ISS020-E-021361 (17 July 2009) --- This image of the exterior of the Space Shuttle Endeavour's crew cabin is one of a series of survey photos recorded by Expedition 20 crew members as the shuttle approached the International Space Station on July 17. During the survey the STS-127 crew performed a back-flip maneuver, as has been the pre-docking routine since the shuttle fleet returned to flight following the Columbia accident. The crew member used a digital still camera with an 800mm focal length, as the two spacecraft were approximately 600 feet (180 meters) apart.
