 “….. Carried out by Discovery between August 28, and September 11, 2009, STS-128 brought with it Leonardo – the Italian-built Multi Purpose Logistics Module — carrying about 7 tons of supplies and equipment, among them life-support and science racks.
 
STS-128 was Discovery’s 37th mission to space and the 30th mission of a Space Shuttle dedicated to the assembly and maintenance of the International Space Station.
 
During STS-128, the crew performed three Space Walks replacing materials processing experiment outside ESA’s Columbus module, returned an empty Ammonia tank assembly, and brought a fresh ISS crew member —Flight Engineer Astronaut Nicole Stott — replacing Expedition 20 Flight Engineer Astronaut Timothy (Tim) Kopra, who has been with the ISS six-person crew since mid-July 2009.
 
Astronaut Nicole Stott is scheduled to stay with the ISS through Expedition 21, until the planned STS-129 Space Shuttle mission returns her home on October 2009.
 
In the best SSM2007 tradition, the virtual astronauts will experience first-hand the liftoff, On-Orbit ops including rendezvous and docking with the ISS,  EVA in Zero-G, RMS operations, Deorbit, Reentry and manually Landing the Shuttle at the Edwards AFB.
 
The Space Shuttle Mission 2007â„¢ is available for online purchase in downloadable format at the SSM2007 official website: www.space-shuttle-mission.com. The latest Demo can also be downloaded freely at the same website…..”.
