This view of the International Space Station, back dropped against the blackness of space, was taken on 17 September 2006, shortly after the Space Shuttle Atlantis undocked from the orbital outpost. Atlantis left the Station with a new, second pair of 240-foot solar wings, attached to a new 17.5-ton section of truss with batteries, electronics and a giant rotating joint. The new solar arrays eventually will double the Station's on board power when their electrical systems are brought online.
