Mission Highlights

The primary mission objectives for STS-101 is to deliver supplies to the International Space Station, perform a spacewalk and then reboost the station from 230 to 250 statute miles (370 to 402 km).

Detailed objectives include ISS ingress/safety to take air samples, monitor carbon dioxide, deploy portable, personal fans, measure air flow, rework/modify ISS ducting, replace air filters, replace Zarya fire extinguishers and smoke detectors. Critical replacements, repairs and spares will also be done to replace four suspect batteries on Zarya, replace failed or suspect electronics for Zarya's batteries, replace Radio Telemetry System memory unit, replace port early communications antenna, replace Radio Frequency Power Distribution Box and clear Space Vision System target.

The mission also includes incremental assembly/upgrades such as assembly of Strela crane, installation of additional exterior handrails, set up of center-line camera cable, installation of "Komparus" cable inserts and reseating the U.S. crane. Assembly parts, tools and equipment will also be transferred to the station and equipment stowed for future missions.

The station will also be resuppled with water, a docking mechanism accessory kit, film and video tape for documentation, office supplies and personal items. Crew health maintenance items will also be transferred including exercise equipment, medical support supplies, formaldehyde monitor kit and a passive dosimetry system.

If there is sufficient shuttle propellant following Atlantis' undocking from the ISS, a flyaround inspection will be performed prior to the Shuttle's final separation maneuver.
