The STS-112 Official Flight Kit (OFK)

October 7, 2002 — The STS-112 mission sets the stage for the expansion of the International Space Station with the delivery of the S1 (S-One) Truss. The STS-112 crew will make three spacewalks to install, activate and outfit the S1, which will be attached to the starboard end of the S0 (S-Zero) Truss.

In addition to the S1, shuttle Atlantis carries nearly 4,000 mementos for the crew and NASA to distribute post-flight. These items include flags, banners, emblems, decals, seals, patches, and small medallions — all of which were hermetically sealed and stowed for the length of the flight.

The following manifest details the STS-112 Official Flight Kit, as provided by NASA:
