Ghostly images of a departed spaceship
Well, perhaps the title's a bit melodramatic... but these are 'ghostly' images as ATV-3 is now longer in existence! These are a selection of images taken by the ISS crew during hatch closure last week, when the placement and location of stowed waste and trash was documented prior to departure (this infro needed to verify centre-of-gravity calculations).
They are some of the last ever photos of the inside of ATV Edoardo Amaldi.
Thanks to Colleen Boggs, ESA's ATV Cargo Operations Engineer, for sharing!
