Re: STS numbers.



Hi Kurt:
You are noticing the difference between the shutle flight naming and the
name that the ISS management assigns to the flights.  They do that so
that a particular shuttle flight is not tied to a particular assembly
step of the ISS.  Take a look at
http://station.nasa.gov/station/assembly/flights/2a2.html and you will
see that ISS assembly flight 2A.2 will launch on STS-101.  The ISS
assembly mission 3A that you mention is scheduled for STS-92 in February
of 2000.
