Swaps International Space Station Crews
Space Shuttle Discovery spent 12 days in orbit, with eight
of those days docked to the International Space Station. While
at the orbital outpost, the STS-105 crew attached the Leonardo
Multi-Purpose Logistics Module, transferred supplies and equipment
to the station, completed two space walks and deployed a small
spacecraft called Simplesat.
delivered the Expedition Three crew -- Commander Frank Culbertson,
Pilot Vladimir Dezhurov and Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin
-- for its extended stay aboard the space station. It returned
to Earth with Expedition Two crewmembers Commander Yury Usachev
and Flight Engineers Jim Voss and Susan Helms who had spent
about five months living on the station.

Space Walks Prepare ISS for Future Construction
Barry and Patrick Forrester spent a total of 11 hours and
45 minutes outside the International Space Station during
two space walks.
space walk involved installing the Early Ammonia Servicer
and the first external experiment -- The Materials International
Space Station Experiment -- onto the station’s hull. The servicer
contains spare ammonia that can be used in the space station's
cooling systems if needed. During the second space walk, they
strung two 13.7-meter, or 45-foot, heater cables and installed
handrails down both sides of the Destiny Laboratory.

carrier made its second trip to the International Space Station
in Discovery's payload bay. The Multi-Purpose Logistics Module,
or MPLM, is one of three supplied by the Italian Space Agency.
Specialist Pat Forrester used the shuttle's robot arm to move
the MPLM from the shuttle to the Earth-facing docking port
on the station's Unity module. Both
crews worked together to haul tons of supplies and equipment
from Leonardo to storage places within the station. Then,
they filled Leonardo with unneeded station equipment and trash
for return to Earth. Forrester once again used the robot arm
to reberth the module in Discovery's payload bay for the trip
