STS 112



STS 112 is an American shuttle spacecraft that was launched from Cape Canaveral at 19:46 UT on 7 October 2002. It carried a crew of five American and one Russian astronauts, and material to the International Space Station (ISS) to augment that facility. During the 11-day mission, the crew extended the truss system of the exterior rail line by a 14 m, 13 tonne girder. The crew also tested a manual cart on the rails; the cart named CETA (Crew and Equipment Transportation Aid) will enable mobility of crew and equipment during the installation phases. It landed back in Cape Canaveral at 15:43 UT on 18 October 2002 carrying back the same crew of six.
