STS-127 is a Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS) which will launch no earlier than May 15, 2009. It is expected to use Space Shuttle "Endeavour". Its primary purpose is to deliver and install the final two components of the Japanese Experiment Module: the Exposed Facility (JEM EF) and the Exposed Section of the Experiment Logistics Module (ELM-ES). This will be ISS assembly flight "2J/A". After STS-127, "Endeavour" is scheduled to fly next on STS-130.
