Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, STS 41-B mission specialist, participates in a historical spacewalk. He is pictured a few meters away from the cabin of the Earth-orbiting Space Shuttle Challenger. This spacewalk represented the first use of a nitrogen-propelled, hand-controlled device called the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU), which allows for much greater mobility than that afforded previous space walkers who had to use restrictive tethers.

The Space Shuttle Challenger, atop a mobile launch platform, slowly moves through the Florida fog to Launch Pad 39A in preparation for its first liftoff on the STS-6 mission. The fully assembled Shuttle, weighting 12,000 pounds less than predecessor Columbia, completed the trip to the pad in just over six hours on Nov. 30, 1982. Image Credit: NASA

A section of the International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by the STS-122 crew aboard space shuttle Atlantis while docked with the station. Atlantis undocked to begin her journey home at 4:24 a.m. EST on Feb. 18. The blackness of space and Earth's airglow provide the backdrop for the scene. Image Credit: NASA
