  • A digital camera with a fish-eye lens captured this image of NASA astronaut Michael Fincke (top center) during the fourth and last spacewalk of Endeavour's STS-134 mission as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station on May 27, 2011. The docked shuttle Endeavour is visible at left.
  • NASA astronaut Greg Chamitoff takes center stage in this amazing spacewalk photo taken by crewmate Mike Fincke (visible in the reflection on Chamitoff's spacesuit visor) using a fish-eye lens and digital camera during a May 27, 2011 excursion outside the International Space Station. It was the last spacewalk ever to be performed by shuttle astronauts and occurred during the STS-134 mission, the final flight of shuttle Endeavour..
  • Parts of the International Space Station and docked shuttle Endeavour are featured in this image photographed by NASA astronaut Mike Fincke using a fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera, during the STS-134 mission's fourth and last spacewalk - the last EVA ever to be performed by a NASA shuttle crew on May 27, 2011.
  • This stunning photo shows two astronauts, Endeavour shuttle commander Mark Kelly and space station flight engineer Ron Garan (both of NASA) gazing out at Earth through the space station's Cupola. A bright blue Earth provides a breathtaking backdrop. The photo was taken on May 25, 2011 by NASA astronaut Mike Fincke during the third spacewalk of Endeavour's STS-134 mission.
  • In this spacewalk photo by Endeavour shuttle astronaut Mike Fincke, Russia's Soyuz capsule 'Yuri Gagarin' dominates the view on a rooftop docking port at the International Space Station during a May 27, 2011 spacewalk. The station's Russian segment, as well as the European ATV-2 Johannes Kepler cargo ship (identifiable by its X-like solar wings) are also visible. Fincke took the photo during the mission's fourth and last spacewalk.

  • The image of Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin is seen emblazoned on the side of a Russian Soyuz spacecraft in this photo taken by Endeavour shuttle astronaut Mike Fincke while working outside the International Space Station during a spacewalk on May 27, 2011. The Soyuz was named after Gagar to honor the 50th anniversary of Gagarin's April 12, 1961 launch into space, which began the era of human spaceflight. This image was posted by NASA astronaut Ron Garan, who launched into space on Gagarin, via his official NASA twitter site @Astro_Ron.
  • This is a view of the night sky of the Southern Hemisphere just off the port wing of NASA's shuttle Endeavour as the shuttle/space station tandem track northeastward over the South Atlantic Ocean about 1,400 miles southeast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The faint 'airglow' of the Earth's atmosphere is visible just left of the wing. The image was taken on May 27, 2011 during the final spacewalk of the STS-134 mission.
  • This stunning photo taken by Endeavour shuttle astronaut Greg Chamitoff shows four different spaceships linked together in orbit. At the far left is Endeavour, while Russia's Soyuz capsule 'Yuri Gagarin' is perched at a rooftop docking port on the International Space Station. The X-shaped solar arrays of Europe's unmanned ATV-2 Johannes Kepler spacecraft round out the fleet at a far right docking port.
  • NASA astronauts Greg Chamitoff (right) and Michael Fincke, both STS-134 mission specialists, participate in the mission's fourth spacewalk for construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station on May 27, 2011. It was the last ever spacewalk by a shuttle crew.
  • A fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera was used to capture this image of Endeavour shuttle astronaut Mike Fincke (center frame) during the STS-134 mission's fourth spacewalk on May 27, 2011. Endeavour's 50-foot inspection boom, which spacewalkers moved to the space station during the excursion, is visible at top left.
  • A bright sun, a portion of the International Space Station and Earth's horizon are featured in this image photographed by a spacewalker, using a fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera, during the STS-134 mission's fourth spacewalk on May 27, 2011.
  • NASA astronauts Andrew Feustel (right) and Greg Chamitoff, both STS-134 mission specialists, appear tiny when compared to their surroundings during the mission's first spacewalk outside the International Space Station on May 20, 2011. The newly-installed Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 (AMS) is at center frame.
  • The feet and lower legs of NASA astronaut Michael Fincke in the airlock prior to the STS-134 mission's second space walk, and Fincke's first for the flight so far, on May 22, 2011. A little later, astronauts Fincke and Andrew Feustel (left side of the frame) both mission specialists, coordinated their shared activity with NASA astronaut Greg Chamitoff (out of frame), who stayed in communication with the pair and with Mission Control Center in Houston from the shirt sleeve environment inside the ISS.
  • With various components of the International Space Station in the view, NASA astronauts Andrew Feustel and Michael Fincke (not pictured) conduct STS-134 mission's third spacewalk. It took place on May 25, 2011 (Flight Day 10).
