    ISS028-E-016601 (14 July 2011) --- The four STS-135 crewmembers, quite accustomed to going en masse to the International Space Station, reverse roles for the occasion of the "All-American Meal" on the middeck of the space shuttle Atlantis. Russian cosmonaut Alexander Samokutyaev, Expedition 28 flight engineer, shares the meal the Atlantis crew in the frame and with five of his station crewmates, who are out of frame. The STS-135 crewmembers are NASA astronauts Chris Ferguson (right), mission commander, along with Doug Hurley (left), pilot; and Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim, both mission specialists.

    ISS028-E-016368 (14 July 2011) --- This panoramic view, photographed from the International Space Station, looking past the docked space shuttle Atlantis' cargo bay and part of the station including a solar array panel toward Earth, was taken on July 14 as the joint complex passed over the southern hemisphere. Aurora Australis or the Soutern Lights can be seen on Earth's horizon and a number of stars are visible also.

    S135-E-007815 (14 July 2011) --- Part of an aggregate of seven astronauts -- six from NASA and one from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) -- and three Russian cosmonauts prepares to participate on July 14, 2011 in a special meal on the Space Shuttle Atlantis' middeck. One of the final meals shared between shuttle and station crews has been called "The All-American Meal." The STS-135 crew consists of NASA astronauts Chris Ferguson, Doug Hurley, Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim; the Expedition 28 or station crew members are JAXA astronaut Satoshi Furukawa, NASA astronauts Ron Garan and Mike Fossum, and Russian cosmonauts Andrey Borisenko, Alexander Samokutyaev and Sergei Volkov.
