S135-E-007420 (11 July 2011) --- NASA astronaut Sandy Magnus, STS-135 mission specialist, may well be thinking of the word "ocean" for two reasons. Her navigation in the weightlessness of space could be loosely compared to swimming, and she is surrounded by an "ocean" of supplies and equipment in the Raffaello multi-purpose logistics module. The supplies and spare parts are for use and consumption for the International Space Station and its crews. Raffaello was transported up to the station by Magnus and her three crewmates aboard the space shuttle Atlantis. Photo credit: NASA
