Performing his own in-space version of "look, Ma, no hands" is STS-119 Mission Specialist Joseph Acaba. The shuttle version of the bike, deployed here on Discovery's mid deck, is called the ergometer and is one device that provides astronauts a chance to exercise while in space.

Creating an image of a century plant in bloom, space shuttle Atlantis trails a column of fire and smoke as it races into space on the STS-125 mission to service NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Atlantis' 11-day flight will include five spacewalks to refurbish and upgrade the telescope with state-of-the-art science instruments that will expand Hubble's capabilities and extend its operational lifespan through at least 2014.

Cooling transfer to ground services occurs at about the same time, allowing onboard cooling to be shut down.

River drainage patterns provide clues to rock types and erosion processes involved in landscape evolution. In the Gotel Mountains, lowlands are composed of thick, uniform, relatively soft rocks or sediments. The randomness of river patterns there indicates stream erosion is the only significant dynamic process altering the landscape. Neighboring highlands are made of hard, erosion-resistant rocks that cracked to form zones of weakness. Credit: NASA/JPL/NGA

In the grasp of the International Space Station's robotic Canadarm2, the S6 truss segment was photographed by a STS-119 crew member while Discovery was docked with the station. The S6 truss segment was moved from Discovery's cargo bay by the station's Canadarm2, handed off to the shuttle's remote manipulator system (RMS), and then handed back to the station's robotic arm where it will remain in an overnight parked position. Also visible in the image are the Columbus laboratory, starboard truss...

Australia, the only continent with no current volcanic activity, is home to one of the world's largest extinct volcanoes: Tweed Volcano, shown in this 3-D stereo image pair. Eruptions here ended about 20 million years ago. Twenty million years of erosion have left this landform deeply eroded yet very recognizable as a caldera with a central peak--the erosional stub of the central pipe that carried magma upward to Earth's surface.

Space shuttle Discovery's external fuel tank is being filled with more than 535,000 gallons of super-cold liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen during a tanking test on Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Engineers are closely monitoring what happens to 21-foot long, U-shaped aluminum brackets, called stringers, located at the tank's intertank region, as well as the newly replaced ground umbilical carrier plate. Data from 89 sensors will be evaluated after the tank returns to...

Two branches of the rift intersect in Tanzania, resulting in distinctive and prominent landforms. The highlands rise far above the adjacent savannas, capture moisture from passing air masses and host rain forests. Credit: NASA/JPL/NGA
