In the space station flight operations control room of Houston's Mission Control Center, astronaut Shannon Walker, ISS spacecraft communicator (CAPCOM), and ISS lead flight director Joel Montalbano (right) keep up with in-space operations of the Space Shuttle Endeavour and the International Space Station. The two craft accomplished a link-up that allows the start of over a week's joint activities to perform work on the orbiting outpost. Astronaut Steven W. (Steve) Lindsey, chief of JSC's astronaut office, joins them.
