Flying above the Andes Mountains near the border of Argentina and Chile, the space shuttle Atlantis is shown making its relative approach to the International Space Station. This image was taken from ISS, during the STS-132 shuttle mission on 16 May 2010. 

Atlantis was named after the RV Atlantis, an exploration sailing ship of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. 

In it's lifetime, Atlantis had travelled almost 126 millon miles or 203 millon km, which is nearly 525 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.
