A panoramic view of the International Space Station looking back from the newly installed solar array truss The combined crews of the Space Shuttle Atlantis and the orbital outpost have resumed construction on the station this week. The two STS-115 crew members in this picture (if you can spot them both) were participating in the second of three scheduled space walks.

Now that would be worth every risk...the one taking the picture of course. Great post Phil. Are you also the great geography guru that can identify the land below or above however you want to think of it?

For sure working in such a amazing environment is certainly not "piece of pie" (the 2010 fans will get my point ;)).
