In this view of the International Space Station's Cupola, a variety of modules and components of the station showcase the contributions of the many nations making up some of the international partnerships behind the space station. On the left is the Cupola, backdropped against black space, and on the right are various components of the orbiting outpost, including Node 3 or Tranquility (on which the Cupola is mounted) and the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module. In the background is a Progress resupply spacecraft. This image was taken during the spacewalk conducted on July 12, 2011. Image Credit: NASA (More at NASA Picture Of The Day)
