They'll be met by ISS Expedition 27 commader Dmitry Kondratyev; flight engineers Andrey Borisenko and Alexander Samokutyaev; Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency; and NASA's Cady Coleman and Ron Garan.

NASA elaborates: "The combined crew of 12 will begin almost 12 days of operations while the spacecraft are docked, including installation of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer-2 and four spacewalks. Beginning at 9:16 a.m. (13:16 GMT), they will operate the shuttle and station’s robotic arms to transfer the spare parts carrier, Express Logistics Carrier 3, from the shuttle to installation on the station. Among items on it are a spare ammonia tank, a high-pressure oxygen tank, two S-band antennas and 10 circuit breakers." ®
