STS 98



STS 98 is an American shuttle spacecraft that was launched from Cape Canaveral at 23:13 UT. It carried a large module, Destiny and a crew of five astronauts to deliver it to the International Space Station (ISS). It docked with the Unity module on 9 February, and delivered Destiny (2001-006B) to another port on Unity. After many hours of spacewalk, the astronauts secured the electrical connections and mechanical fits. The crew also delivered over a ton of food, fuel and equipment to the ISS. STS 98, with all five astronauts, landed in Edwards AFB in California on 20 February at 20:33 UT due to persistent wind problems at Cape Canaveral.
