The OMS-2 burn at 2313 UTC put Endeavour in the next 229 x 317 km orbit because the ET fell back to reentry around 2346 UTC. Main mission aims have been supply of the Harmony module to the station, and external work to maneuver the P6 truss to its closing location and put the ISS into its full-energy configuration for the primary time. The OMS-2 circularization burn at 20:23 GMT put it into a 215 km x 233 km chase orbit. 15:15 GMT – . The station arm then connected to the P3/P4 truss to the station’s P1 truss at 07:27 on 12 September. 2006 September 9 – . Spring 2006 – . Early 2006 – . USAF Sat Cat: 32699 . USAF Sat Cat: 29391 .

The crew then began unloading the spare components. Endeavour began its deorbit burn at 15:25 GMT on August 21. Lowered its orbit from 336 x 347 km to -28 x 342 km. It landed on runway 15 at Kennedy House Middle at 16:32 GMT. At the Shuttle RMS robot arm related to the big P3/P4 truss in the payload pay and handed it off to the Station’s robotic arm between 14:Fifty two and 15:03 GMT the same day. 21:02 GMT – . 22:36 GMT – .
