This high- angle 800mm image of the Tranquility node in space shuttle Endeavour's cargo bay was photographed by an Expedition 22 crew member aboard the International Space Station. The two spacecraft were in the process of their rendezvous activities which included a back-flip by Endeavour. Tranquility will be installed as the third node for the orbital outpost.
