ISS Report #25, 3:30 p.m. CDT, Friday, May 19, 2006
In space this week, a satellite flew within a satellite.
International Space Station Flight Engineer Jeff Williams 'piloted'
a unique spacecraft in three dimensions for the first time around
the pressurized Destiny module. The demonstration tested the basics
of formation flight and autonomous docking that could be useful in
multiple spacecraft formation flying in the future.
