ISS/Mir Crew Transport

[edit] Mission

STS 105 is an American shuttle spacecraft that was launched from Cape Canaveral at 21:10 UT on 10 August '01 to dock with the ISS. It carried a crew of 10, including three to-be-stationed long endurance astronauts (one American and two Russian), five tonnes of supplies, hardware, and a bedroom suite to accomodate a third astonaut in the Destiny module. The crew installed in the station two new science experiment racks that were carried in the Leonardo container which was first lifted out of the shuttle and bolted to the UNITY module. Leonardo then carried back all the trash from the ISS back to the shuttle. They installed also the MISSE (Materials International Space Station Experiment) container outside the ISS to test the effect of radiation on materials, and some low cost science experiments such as microgravity cell growth studies inside the station. The shuttle landed back in Cape Canaveral at 18:23 UT on 22 August '01, ferrying back three astronauts (one Russian and two American) who had spent over five months in the station.
