  • Loading and undocking of Progress M-55 from the Docking Compartment (PIRS);
  • Operational support for docking of Progress M-57 to PIRS and its unloading;
  • Operational support for docking of the Space Shuttle in flight 12A;
  • Loading and undocking of Progress M-56 from SM IC (Zvezda);
  • Support of the Space Station functionality;
  • Performance of extravehicular activity: i.e. one US egress (EVA) on the ISS USOS (Unity) and two Russian egresses (EVA) on the ISS Russian Segment;
  • Performance of the science and application research program and experiments SVS, Crystallizator, Relaksatsia, Uragan, Ekon, Plasma-ISS, Pulse, Pilot, Biorisk, Akvarium, Rastenia-2, Statokonia, Regeneration, Prognos, Matroshka-R, Diatomeya, Volny, Glikoproteid, Mimetik-K, KAF, Vaktsina-K, Biotrek, Konjugatsia, Biodegradatsia, Bioecologia, Interleikin-K, Antigen, Infrazvuk-M, Meteoroid, Vector-T, Izgib, Plasma Crystal, Identifikatsiya, Skorpion, Sreda, Infotech, Kromka, as well as contracted commercial experiments GTS, GCF-JAXA, Rokviss, Golf, ETD, Myocite, Stroma, Amphibody, Tubul, MIA, NKA, Bioculture, Altcriss, Cardiocog-4, NOA, and Cult.
  • Implementation of the scientific research program onboard the ISS under BSM Centenario project (Gosum, Dnarm, Smek, Nip, Cemex, Wmhp, Seeds, Chrophyl), during the EP-10 mission;
  • Crew handover to Increment ISS EO-14 and return of ISS EO-13 crew, as well as the flight participant working under the visiting Brazilian crewmember (EP-11) program with Soyuz TMA-8.

Cameras revealed that large chunks of foam were still shed from the external tank during the ascent to orbit. However examination of the heat shield using a new extension and sensors attached to the shuttle's robot arm revealed no significant damage. Discovery docked with the PMA-2 adapter on the Destiny module of the ISS at 14:52 GMT on 6 July. On July 7 the Leonardo cargo module was moved from the shuttle payload bay by the robot arm and docked to the Unity Module of the ISS between 09:42 and 11:50 GMT. The crew then began unloading the spare parts and supplies in the module to the station. A series of three EVAs conducted on 8 to 12 July tested the new equipment and techniques for repairing the shuttle heat shield in case of damage, and did some preliminary installations on the exterior of the ISS to pave the way for continued station assembly missions. On 14 July, the station's SSRMS robot moved the Leonardo module from the station back to the shuttle cargo bay between 13:08 and 14:50 GMT. The shuttle separated from the ISS, and fired its engines at 12:07 GMT on 17 July to make a 92 m/s deorbit maneuver. Discovery landed at the Kennedy Space Center at 13:14 GMT. European astronaut Reiter was left behind to make up part of the EO-13 resident crew on the station.

They installed a replacement Floating Potential Measurement Unit and two long-duration materials exposure MISSE containers. The crew then moved to the S1 truss, where Williams conducted several assembly and repair tasks on the right side of the truss, while Reiter did the same on the left. Then they worked together to install a new infrared camera that would scan arriving shuttles for damage to their heat shields. After completing further minor repairs, they were ahead of the timeline, so ground contorl passed up additonal tasks in preparation for future assembly spacewalks.

The station arm then connected to the P3/P4 truss to the station's P1 truss at 07:27 on 12 September. Three EVA's were made by the shuttle crew over the next three days to complete installation of the truss and deply its solar panels. The Shuttle undocked from the station at 12:50 GMT on 20 September. There was a one-day delay in landing due to weather at the Cape and some concern about several small objects seen floating near the spacecraft. These were believed to be plastic shims that had worked loose from between the tiles and were not a concern. Atlantis landed at Kennedy Space Center at 10:21 GMT on 21 September.
