    S126-E-008884 (21 Nov. 2008) --- This image, recorded in late evening hours of Nov. 21, Houston time, shows astronaut Michael Fincke, Expedition 18 commander, joining his Endeavour counterpart, astronaut Chris Ferguson, on the mid deck of the space shuttle. The photo may cause observers to do a double take; though Fincke's recently having begun his second tour aboard the International Space Station, the environs of the shuttle are not so familiar to him as those of the station. Members of the respective crews commanded by Ferguson and Fincke are spending close to two weeks in space together, accomplishing home improvement chores and a number of other tasks. Just a few hours after this photo was taken, two astronauts started prepping for the joint crews' third spacewalk of the week.
