The International Space Station is backdropped over clouds, water and land in South America. South central Chile shows up at bottom of the frame. Just below the Destiny laboratory, the Chacao Channel separates the large island of Chiloe from the mainland and connects the Gulf of Coronados on the Pacific side with the Gulf of Ancud southwest of the city of Puerto Montt. The crews of the Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-98) and the International Space Station parted company at 9:06 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time), February 16, 2001, as astronaut Mark L. Polansky, pilot, flew the shuttle halfway around the station and its new Destiny laboratory before moving off for the return trip to Earth.
