If you’re like me, you might have done a double take when you first saw this picture. As you’ve probably already realized, this image shows a rare view of the space shuttle Endeavour docked with the International Space Station. This serene scene shows the Endeavour during the STS-134 shuttle mission in May 2011; this photo marks this shuttles last trip into space. The picture was taken by Paolo Nespoli, part of the Expedition 27 crew, as they departed the ISS on the Soyuz TMA-20 and prepared to return to Earth on May 23.
