[b]STS-134 mission patch[/b]
STS-134 will bring to the International Space Station (ISS) the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a state-of-the-art cosmic ray particle physics detector designed to examine fundamental issues about matter and the origin and structure of the universe.
The mission will also carry the third Express Logistics Carrier (ELC-3) with spare parts for the station, including two S-band communications antennas, a high-pressure gas tank, additional spare parts for Dextre and micrometeoroid debris shields.
Mark Kelly will command STS-134, which is targeted to launch on the final flight of Endeavour and the penultimate mission of the space shuttle program in April 2011. Greg "Box" Johnson will serve as pilot. STS-131 mission specialists are Mike Fincke, Greg Chamitoff, Drew Feustel and European Space Agency astronaut Roberto Vittori.
