Endeavour's final flight

Backdropped by a night view of the Earth and the starry sky, Space Shuttle Endeavour orbits near the International Space Station on May 28.

The STS-134 astronauts left the station the next day on May 29, after delivering the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer and performing four spacewalks during Endeavour's final mission.
