NASA astronaut Jeffrey Williams, commander of the Expedition 22 crew aboard the International Space Station, admires "fresh" produce from Earth following the arrival of the space shuttle Endeavour and its six STS-130 crewmembers a short time earlier. The two crews, totaling eleven cosmonauts and astronauts, will be sharing duties for more than a week and are scheduled to team up for three spacewalks in the coming days. Astronauts Robert Behnken and Nicholas Patrick of the STS-130 crew (not pictured) are scheduled for the outside portion of all three spacewalks.
