The primary such manoeuvre was at 01:Eleven GMT on July 25 when the IPS engines fired for five minutes to raise perigee to 1192 km. At 2357 GMT the OMS engines fired for the OMS-2 burn which raised Atlantis’ orbit to 204 x 322 km x 51.6 deg. The orbiter fired its OMS engines at 1221 GMT to boost the orbit to 185 x 219 km. Further perigee burns on July 31, August 4, and August 7 raised the orbit to its closing 10,000 km x 140.000 km. 2001 July 12 – . 2001 April 19 – . On 23 April the SSRMS station manipulator was unberthed from the SLP Spacelab pallet at 1114 GMT. Raffaello was then unberthed from Unity at 2003 GMT on April 27 and reberthed in the rear of Endeavour’s bay for return to earth at 2059 GMT.Undocking of Endeavour was delayed by a sequence of computer problems at the Station. This was followed at 1458 GMT with the MPLM-2 Raffaello module being moved from Endeavour’s payload bay by the Shuttle’s RMS and berthed to the nadir port on the ISS Unity module at 1600 GMT.
ISS Assembly flight. Launch delayed from January 18 and February 6. International Space Station assembly mission; delivered the Destiny and PMA-2 modules. This was a aspect-looking radar that digitally mapped with unprecedented accuracy your entire land floor of the Earth between latitudes 60 deg N and 54 deg S. Sponsors of the flight included the US National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), NASA, and the German and Italian house companies. The crew of four Americans, one Russian, one Canadian and one Italian were to install an 18 meter, 1,seven hundred kg Canadian robotic arm named Canadarm-2 on the ISS, and to transport an Italian cargo container, Raffaello, which delivered 4,500 kg of provides and gear to the station. The first mission was to ship a multi-rack Italian container (Leonardo MultiPurpose Logistics Module, LMPLM) to the Destiny Module of the International Space Station, ISS. Destiny was an American ISS module, an 8.4 meter long and 4.2 meter large cylindrical structure with a mass of 15 tonnes. They completed connections for the newly put in Z1 external framework construction and transferred equipment and supplies for the Expedition One first resident crew of the Station.
