Camera Crew: Taking Pictures of the Mission (1997)

About This Image

Astronaut Steven Smith took this picture of fellow crew member Mark Lee during Hubble’s second servicing mission in 1997. Lee is preparing to document the day’s activities with a shuttle camera. Engineers rely on astronauts’ photos to design and build new hardware for Hubble, and other astronauts use them for training. In addition to the hand-held cameras, the shuttle has cameras mounted to it in various locations to capture other footage.
