S 3/4 - Truss   

The shuttle astronauts installed the 17.5-ton Starboard 3/Starboard 4 truss segments and their two solar wings. The new equipment represents the heaviest payload ever launched to the space station. At 16,183 kilograms the new trusses and solar arrays are about 317 kilograms heavier than their portside counterparts already aboard the ISS. The astronauts also folded away an older solar wing into its storage boxes so its P6 truss segment can be moved during a future spaceflight.

Expedition 15 member Sunita L. Williams returned to Earth with STSS-117. That flight will carry Expedition 15/16 Flight Engineer Clayton C. Anderson to the station.
