Backdropped against the blackness of space, this is one of the first views of the International Space Station. This image of the station was photographed by the crew aboard space shuttle Atlantis in February 2001 as the shuttle and the station parted company on Feb. 16, as shuttle pilot Mark Polansky flew halfway around the outpost and its new Destiny laboratory before moving off. The station's first resident crew, Expedition One, launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome on Oct. 31, 2000. The...

In this STS-61B onboard photo, astronaut Jerry Ross, perched on the Manipulator Foot Restraint, approaches the Assembly Concept for Construction of Erectable Space Structure (ACCESS) experiment. The experiment was one of two designed to test the structural assembly concepts for suitability as the framework for larger space structures, and to identify ways to improve the productivity of space construction.

Astronauts Ron Garan and Mike Fossum perform tasks during the STS-124's mission's third scheduled spacewalk as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station. During the six-hour, 33-minute spacewalk, Fossum and Garan exchanged a depleted Nitrogen Tank Assembly for a new one, removed thermal covers and launch locks from the Kibo laboratory, reinstalled a repaired television camera onto the space station's left P1 truss and retrieved samples of a dust-like substance...

Space shuttle Atlantis lifts off of Launch Pad 39B on the STS-37 mission. The primary payload, Gamma Ray Observatory (GRO), was deployed on flight day three of the mission. The GRO high-gain antenna failed to deploy on command but was finally freed and manually deployed by Mission Specialists Jerry L. Ross and Jay Apt during an unscheduled contingency space walk, the first since April 1985. Photo credit: NASA/KSC April 5, 1991

Space shuttle Atlantis, OV-104, was delivered to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, in April of 1985. Mission STS-51J was the first flight of space shuttle Atlantis, launching Oct. 3, 1985 to deliver a communications satellite for the Department of Defense. Studies also were conducted by the crew on space motion sickness, cardiovascular deconditioning, muscle loss, changes in coordination, balance strategies, and changes in the body's biochemistry. Atlantis landed at Edwards Air Force Base...
