NASA robs me of my critical faculties

Yes, I realise the International Space Station is a giant money pit of dubious scientific merit. And yes, I know NASA releases spectacular space images as part of a PR campaign: the media disseminates the pictures, the public eats them up, and NASA thus insulates itself against criticism from politicians, the scientific community and space enthusiasts.

But can we please stop talking about that stuff for a moment so I can ogle NASA's latest photo gallery, which for the first time features images of a space shuttle docked with the ISS? Thank you. 

Here's the whole photo set. Try not to drool on the keyboard.
