    S127-E-007384 (21 July 2009) --- Judging by the countenance of astronaut Doug Hurley, things are going relatively well for the 13 crew members of the joint station-shuttle aggregation. Hurley, STS-127 pilot, is pictured on Endeavour's mid deck while most of the crewmembers are busy on the orbital outpost. Crew members worked a great deal of robotics issues on this day, working from inside to move hardware around on the outside.

    S127-E-007464 (21 July 2009) --- Nine of a total aggregation of 13 astronauts and cosmonauts are pictured at meal time aboard the International Space Station. Seated at the table, clockwise from bottom left, are European Space Agency astronaut Frank De Winne, astronaut Christopher Cassidy, along with astronauts Mike Barratt and Tim Kopra and Canadian Space Agency astronaut Robert Thirsk and astronaut Mark Polansky. From left to right at top are Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Koichi Wakata and Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonauts Roman Romanenko and Gennady Padalka. Not pictured are astronauts Tom Marshburn, Dave Wolf and Doug Hurley, plus Canadian Space Agency astronaut Julie Payette. Seven astronauts left Kennedy Space Center one week ago aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour to join up with the six Expedition 20 crew members on the orbital outpost to continue work on it. The space fliers have completed two of five scheduled spacewalks up to this point.
