The Russian segment of the International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by a space-walking astronaut during the third and final spacewalk for the STS-129 mission. The Poisk Mini Research Module 2 (MRM2), docked to the space-facing port of the Zvezda Service Module, is at top center; and a Progress resupply vehicle is docked to the Pirs Docking Compartment at bottom center. Zarya (partially obscured by solar panels) is at right center. Earth's horizon and the blackness of space provide the backdrop for the scene.
