English: Discovery begins the nine-minute Rendezvous Pitch Maneuver, or 'backflip,' on its last visit to the International Space Station.
This view of the nose, crew cabin and forward payload bay of the space shuttle Discovery was provided by an Expedition 27 crew member during a survey of the approaching STS-134 vehicle prior to docking with the International Space Station. As part of the survey and part of every mission's activities, Endeavour performed a back-flip for the rendezvous pitch maneuver (RPM). The image was photographed with a digital still camera, using a 400mm lens at a distance of about 600 feet (180 meters).
Polski: Prom Endeavour, rozpoczyna dziewięcio minutowy Rendezvous Pitch Maneuver, lub "backflip", podczas jego ostaniej wizyty na Międzynarodowej Stacji Kosmicznej.
Zdjęcie dziobu, kabiny załogi i przedniej części komory ładunkowej wahadłowca Endeavour, wykonali członkowie 27 ekspedycji, podczas przeglądu osłony termicznej promu. Od katastrofy promu Columbia, a konkretnie od STS-114 począwszy, takie przeglądy stały się standardami pozostałych misji. Zdjęcie zostało wykonane z odległości 180 metrów aparatem cyfrowym uzbrojonym w obiektyw 400 mm.
