S118-E-07111 (14 Aug. 2007) --- Backdropped by a colorful Earth, the Space Shuttle Endeavour's Remote Manipulator System (RMS) robotic arm moves an external stowage platform (ESP-3) for a hand-off to the station's robotic arm (out of frame) while docked with the International Space Station. Astronauts Tracy Caldwell and Barbara R. Morgan, both STS-118 mission specialists, were inside at Endeavour's controls as the shuttle's robotic arm lifted the storage platform from the cargo bay to hand it over to the station's robotic arm, also known as Canadarm2. Astronauts Charlie Hobaugh, pilot, and Clay Anderson, Expedition 15 flight engineer, then used Canadarm2 to attach the 13-by-7-foot platform to the station's Port 3 truss.
