Launched on Dec 01, 2000 at 03:06 GMT the crew of the STS-97 on Space Shuttle Endeavour consisted of:
Pilot Michael Bloomfield, Commander Brent Jett and Mission Specialists Marc Garneau, Carlos Noriega and Joseph Tanner.
The main objective of STS-97 was to build and enhance the capabilities of the International Space Station. It delivered the first set of U.S. solar arrays and batteries, as well as radiators to provide cooling. Endeavour and its crew spent seven days docked to the station, which was staffed by its first resident crew. The STS-97 crew conducted three space walks and attached and unfurled the 73-meter (240-foot) solar arrays. A communications system for voice and telemetry also was installed.
The mission saw 3 spacewalks by Joe Tanner and Carlos Noriega, the final one including help in repairing the solar array blankets that did not stretch out properly during deployment.
