    hello, I have taken sufficient time to make sure that I don't take my 
    wishes for reality, but now it's certain with the simultaneous NASA 
    video: the images taken on Feb 28th show Steve Bowen in EVA, besides 
    the robotic arm and the ammonia pump under repair. All details are 
    real, including structures and joints along the arm.
    The image is extracted from the 3D videos (crossed-eyes and anaglyph) 
    still available here:
    To my knowledge, this is the first-ever ground-based image showing an 
    astronaut in EVA.
    And here are the last images of Discovery in flight, taken on March 7 
    and 8. The left image (taken under horrible seeing) shows the robotic 
    arm of Discovery, in place for a last inspection of the protection 
    tiles before landing
    Good bye Discovery!
