One of three T-38 jet aircraft with STS-115 crew members aboard lands at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility. The crew is arriving to prepare for launch on Aug. 27 to the International Space Station. Crew members are Commander Brent Jett, Pilot Christopher Ferguson and Mission Specialists Joseph Tanner, Daniel Burbank, Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and Steven MacLean, who represents the Canadian Space Agency. The mission will deliver and install the 17-and-a-half-ton P3/P4 truss segment to the port side of the integrated truss system on the orbital outpost. The truss includes a new set of photovoltaic solar arrays. When unfurled to their full length of 240 feet, the arrays will provide additional power for the station in preparation for the delivery of international science modules over the next two years. STS-115 is expected to last 11 days and includes three scheduled spacewalks. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
