Some Pictures of a Shuttle in Flight
While these shots of Endeavour and the ISS are getting some well-deserved press, I just came across this picture of Endeavour with Earth in the background and the Dextre Robotic Arm in the foreground. I haven't found any press release about it yet. Seeing the stars is cool, and the cargo bay lit with its own light is pretty neat. The blurred city lights below give the perception of motion, while other minor effects like seeing the stars through the atmosphere are awesome. The camera was held pretty steady for this shot.
