Launch from Cape Canaveral; landing on Cape Canaveral (KSC).
Following a two day solo flight the Discovery docked with the ISS on August 12, 2001. The crew replaced the expedition 2 crew. The main purpose of STS-105 was the rotation of the International Space Station crew and the delivery of supplies utilizing the Italian built Multi Purpose Logistics Module (MPLM) Leonardo on its second flight.
The first EVA by Vladimir Dezhurov and Mikhail Tyurin occured on 08.10.2001 (4h 58m) using first time the new Russian built airlock and docking port named Pirs, which docked on the Zvezda module since September 2001.
The second spacewalk was performed by Vladimir Dezhurov and Mikhail Tyurin on October 15, 2001 (5h 52m) to mount a variety of instruments outside the Zvezda service module.
The third EVA by Vladimir Dezhurov and Frank Culbertson was conducted on November 12, 2001 (5h 4m) to connect seven cables between Zvezda service module and Pirs docking module and take photos.
The fourth and final EVA was performed by Vladimir Dezhurov and Mikhail Tyurin on December 03, 2001 (2h 46m) to cut away a rubbery O-ring seal that was preventing an unmanned cargo freighter from properly docking to the complex.
The crew carried home the results of following experiments: Advanced Protein Crystallization Facility, the Dynamically Controlled Protein Crystal Growth experiment and cells from the Cellular Biotechnology Operations Support System (CBOSS).

The Expedition Three crew of the International Space Station enjoyed a unique view of the 2001 Leonid meteor storm. "It looked like we were seeing UFOs approaching the earth flying in formation, three or four at a time," recalls astronaut Frank Culbertson. "There were hundreds per minute going beneath us, really spectacular!" News reports had warned sky watchers in advance: On November 18, 2001, Earth was due to plow through a minefield of debris shed by Comet Tempel-Tuttle. Innumerable bits of comet dust would become meteors when they hit Earth's atmosphere at 144,000 miles per hour (64,000 m/s). Experts predicted an unforgettable display ... and it came. Millions of people saw the show, but only three of themthe ones on board the space stationsaw it from above. "We had to look down to see the meteors," says Frank Culbertson. "That's because the atmosphere (where comet dust burns up) is below the station."
Common work with the visiting crew of Soyuz TM-33 (October 23, - October 31, 2001) was done.
