STS-134 (ISS assembly flight ULF6) was the penultimate mission of NASA's Space Shuttle program. Changes in the design of the main payload, AMS-02, as well as delays to STS-133, led to delays in the mission. The first launch attempt on 29 April 2011 was scrubbed at 12:20 pm by launch managers due to problems with two heaters on one of the orbiter's auxiliary power units (APU). Endeavour launched successfully at 12:56:28 UTC on 16 May 2011, and landed for the final time on 1 June 2011.
