On November 18, 2009 the American Space Shuttle "Atlantis” (STS-129) docked with the International Space Station at 16:51 UTC. It has delivered over 13 tons of supplies and equipment to the orbital station. Atlantis mission will return ISS crew member Nicole Stott to Earth and is planned to be the final space shuttle crew rotation flight. Stott spent two and a half month on board the ISS. Only five U.S. space shuttle missions remain before the shuttle fleet is retired next year.
