Following replenishment of the station (using the Raffaello MPLM-6 module with 8240 kg of provides), a sequence of spacewalks verified the integrity of the shuttle’s heat shield and tested restore techniques, Discovery undocked from the ISS at 07:24 GMT on 6 August and landed safely on Runway 22 at Edwards Air Force Base at 12:Eleven GMT on 9 August. STS-133 was to have flown ISS meeting mission ISS-20A. Landing mass was 100,878 kg. Due to weather issues a landing at White Sands was thought-about; but ultimately Discovery landed safely at Kennedy Space Center, after which it was to enter a yr-long overhaul cycle. There was a one-day delay in touchdown resulting from weather at the Cape. ISS Assembly flight delayed from March 22, April 4, August 22, September 28, October 2 because of payload delays after which SSME problems. Most important mission aims were supply of the Harmony module to the station, and exterior work to maneuver the P6 truss to its final location and put the ISS into its full-power configuration for the primary time.
The crew made three spacewalks to install these truss segments, conduct other station reconfiguration and installation work, deploy the photo voltaic arrays and prepare them for operation. Three EVA’s had been made by the shuttle crew over the next three days to complete set up of the truss and deply its solar panels. During several hours of EVA, the crew installed and secured the truss meeting. Program: ISS. Flight: STS-126A. STS-124 was to have flown ISS assembly mission ISS-1J/A. Program: ISS. Flight: STS-132A.
