Launch from Cape Canaveral; landing on Cape Canaveral (KSC).
Following a two day solo flight the Discovery docked with the ISS on March 10, 2001. The crew replaced the expedition 1 crew. James Voss and Yuri Usachyov performed a first station based spacewalk (IVA) on the ISS on June 08, 2001 (19 minutes) to install a docking cone assembly for the arrival of a new Russian built docking compartment, scheduled for late 2001. Several technical problems with the Canadian built remote manipulator system (Canadarm2) occured. The resident crew performed scientific work onboard the station (18 different science experiments). Two cargo spacecrafts were unloaded.
During this expedition, research facilities launched to the Space Station included a Human Research Facility, two EXPRESS (Expedite the Processing of Experiments to the Space Station) Racks, one of which contains the Active Rack Isolation System and the Payload Equipment Restraint System. They also prepared the Destiny laboratory to enable upcoming experiments to be conducted.

Common work with the visiting crews of STS-100 (April 21, - April 29, 2001), Soyuz TM-32 (April 30, - May 06, 2001) and STS-104 (July 14, - July 22, 2001) was done.
STS-102 was the first use of the Multi Purpose Logistics Module (Leonardo) to bring supplies to the station. Also carried an Integrated Cargo Carrier (ICC). The ICC had the External Stowage Platform-1 mounted on its underside. ESP-1 was placed on the port side of 'Destiny' as a storage location for ORUs. The mission also included two spacewalks to relocate the units carried up by the ICC to the Destiny module exterior.
The highest priority objectives of the flight STS-100 were the installation, activation and checkout of the Canadarm2 robotic arm on the station. The operation of the arm is critical to the capability to continue assembly of the International Space Station, and was also necessary to attach a new airlock to the station on the subsequent shuttle flight.
Primary objectives of STS-104 were to install the Quest Joint Airlock. The Joint Airlock is 20 ft (6.1 m) long, 13 ft (4.0 m) in diameter and weighs 6.5 short tons (5.9 metric tons). The Joint Airlock is a pressurized flight element consisting of two cylindrical chambers attached end-to-end by a connecting bulkhead and hatch. It should give the ISS resident crews the possibility to perform EVAs without using a Space Shuttle airlock.
