Astronauts working on space station anchored to Canadarm

Space station moves away from the Discovery

Backdropped against a blanket of heavy cloud cover, the Russian-built
FGB, also called Zarya, approaches the Space Shuttle Endeavour and the
U.S.-built Node 1, also called Unity (foreground). Inside Endeavour’s
cabin, the STS-88 crew readies the remote manipulator system for Zarya
capture as they awaited the rendezvous, December 6, 1988.
