Caption: ISS space debris. This is the Early Ammonia Servicer (EAS) unit after being jettisoned from the International Space Station (ISS) on 23 July 2007. The EAS, which had been installed on the ISS in August 2001, was an ammonia reservoir for use in the event of a leak from the existing cooling system. Following the installation of a permanent cooling system in December 2006, the EAS was no longer needed. The ISS orbits some 350 kilometres above the Earth. Most space debris at this level quickly re-enters the Earth's atmosphere and burns up.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
