Their mission, designated STS-114, was the first since the Space Shuttle Columbia accident in 2003.

During their 14-day flight, the astronauts tested new equipment and procedures developed to improve safety and resupplied and made repairs to the International Space Station. The mission also included an unprecedented back flip maneuver as the shuttle approached the station and the first repair of the shuttle's heat shield while in space.
