article imageNASA: Photos from space shuttle Endeavour's last voyage

By David Silverberg     May 30, 2011 in Technology
NASA released photos of its space shuttle Endeavour's recent mission. It undocked from the space station for the final time last night.
The Endeavour shuttle left the International Space Station at 11:55 p.m. EDT Sunday, "ending a stay of 11 days, 17 hours and 41 minutes at the orbiting laboratory," NASA said on its website.
Endeavour flew around the station at about 450 to 650 feet, and crew members snapped videos and photos of the station. NASA released the photos today, offering them for public use.
The Endeavour plans to spend another two days in orbit and then it will land at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on June 1.
Who's on the Endeavour mission? Crew members include Commander Mark Kelly, Pilot Gregory H. Johnson and Mission Specialists Michael Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Andrew Feustel and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori.
Below are several more photos NASA has released of Endeavour's voyage in space. Some of the photos depict shuttle technology with the Earth hovering the background. There are also internal shuttle shots of the crew posing for photos:
