STS-108 patch The crew of the space shuttle Endeavour and the new and old International Space Station crews took time Sunday afternoon to remember the events of September 11 and their aftermath. During a five-minute memorial on the station astronauts paid tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks. Endeavour is carrying a number of mementos related to the attacks, including American flags from the Pentagon and World Trade Center, as well as 10,000 small flags that will be distributed to survivors of those killed. Crews spent the rest of Sunday transferring equipment and supplies from a cargo module to the station. Two STS-108 astronauts, Linda Godwin and Dan Tani, will perform an EVA Monday to wrap thermal blankets around motors that control the large solar arrays on the station and perform several "get ahead" tasks for spacewalks scheduled for a future shuttle mission.
