    PIRS module is the silver one at bottom of picture with all the docking radars. The black one is the cargo ship that's pulling it away after 19 years, 313 days 9 hours 50 minutes and 45 seconds at the station.

    It will be replaced by the larger new one attached to the European Robotic Arm.

    Nauka certainly caused a few tense moments.
