What: Commander Brent Jett and crew members of Space Shuttle Atlantis' STS-115 mission will visit NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., Wednesday, Nov. 1. The mission, which flew Sept. 9-21, was the first in a series of missions that are among the most complex in space history. Atlantis delivered and installed the massive P3/P4 truss, a 35,000-pound, girder-like structure that is an integral part of the station's backbone, and two sets of solar arrays that will eventually provide one-quarter of the station's power.
