This image, recorded in late evening hours of Nov. 21, Houston time, shows astronauts Eric Boe, left, and Steve Bowen on the mid deck of the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Just a few hours after this photo was taken, Bowen was one of two astronauts who started prepping for the joint crews' third spacewalk (and Bowen's second) of the week. Members of the shuttle and station crews, commanded by astronauts Chris Ferguson and Michael Fincke, respectively, are spending close to two weeks in space together, accomplishing home improvement chores and a number of other tasks.
