A photo of the shuttle, one you may not have seen

NASA's Shuttle Endeavour has arrived safely at the Los Angeles International Airport and will soon be displayed at it's new home, at the California Science Center's Samuel Oschin display pavilion.  There have been thousands of photo opts on it's final trek, however, this is one photo of Endeavour that you might not have seen.

On May 23, 2011, Expedition 27 Commander Dmitry Kondratyev and Flight Engineers Cady Coleman and Paolo Nespoli un-docked from the International Space Station, heading home aboard the Russian Soyuz TMA-20.  That was the perfect time to take video and photos of a sight we've never had a real chance to see, a shuttle (Endeavour) docked to the orbital complex.

See (NASA) video here.

To all the shuttle pilots and crew;  to Mission Control and all involved,  good job and thanks for the memories.  "Roger, out."
