ISS on the horizon

Last week, the STS-121 crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery undocked from the ISS and completed their successful return to the Earth. This was great news for space travel and in particular the ISS as it means that shuttle missions to finish the station will resume and will be safe. When they left they took this fantastic picture of the truely international space station (currently there is one European, one Russian and one American on the station):
