Atlantis' six crew members did install a second set of solar arrays on the space station, doubling the station's ability to generate power from sunlight and adding 17.5 tons to its mass.

Atlantis' flight  delivered the station's first Solar Alpha Rotary Joint - a 10-foot wide, wagon-wheel-shaped joint that allows the arrays to turn toward the sun. Nothing like this joint has ever flown in space.
