Endeavour (STS-127 / 2JA) sets sail on its 23rd mission with the Japanese Kibo Laboratory's Exposed Facility and Experiment Logistics Module Exposed Section, the final permanent components of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s contribution to the station program. During the 16-day mission, Endeavour's crew will perform five spacewalks and deliver six new batteries for the P6 truss, a spare drive unit for the Mobile Transporter and a spare boom assembly for the Ku-band antenna. Mark Polansky (1996/16/STS-116) will be Endeavour's commander targeted for launch 15-Jul-2009 @ 6:03 p.m. EDT. Doug Hurley (2000/18) will serve as the pilot. Mission specialists will be Christopher Cassidy (2004/19), Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut Julie Payette (1996/16), Tom Marshburn (2004/19), and Dave Wolf (1990/13). The mission will deliver a new station crew member, Tim Kopra (2000/18) replacing Koichi Wakata (1992/14, JAXA) who will return home with the STS-127 crew. The STS-127 mission will also set a record for the most humans in space at the same time in the same vehicle — the space station.
