STS-129 (ISS assembly flight ULF3) is a planned space shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) which is expected to be flown by Space Shuttle Atlantis. The launch date for the mission is scheduled for no earlier than November 12, 2009.
STS-129 will focus on staging spare components outside the station. The 15-day flight is scheduled to include at least three spacewalks. The payload bay will carry two large External Logistics Carriers holding two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly, a spare latching end effector for the station's robotic arm, a spare trailing umbilical system for the Mobile Transporter, and a high-pressure gas tank. The completion of this mission will leave five space shuttle flights remaining until the end of the program.
