My favorite crazy photo of the past week is by French photographer Thierry Legault, who captured the space shuttle Endeavor docked to the International Space Station as the pair flew in orbit with the Sun in the background. Thanks to Wired Science for the heads-up via Twitter.For more of Mr. Legault’s photograph go to Astrophotography.
