Science Fiction, for Real

You know how in sci-fi movies they have those scenes where a spacecraft docks with a space station? It also happens in real-life:

Space Shuttle Docked to the International Space Station

The above image is one of a whole set of photos showing Space Shuttle Endeavour docked to the International Space Station, released today by NASA (high-res versions available at the link). They were taken by yet another spacecraft, a Russian Soyuz mission that had just left the ISS.

For more on the images, see Alan Boyle's latest entry at Cosmic Log.

We truly do live in an age of constant wonder and miracle.
