Thermal Protection System (TPS) cleared for reentry!

The review of all the imagery was completed last night! There were 4 areas of interest for Atlantis, but all have been declared acceptable for entry. We're assembling our charts that will be presented to the Orbiter Project Office!

I was watching replays of Atlantis docking to the ISS on NASA TV and heard the commentator state that the orbiter is not equipped with a Station-to-Shuttle Power Transfer System. I tried doing some research on it as to why Discovery and Endeavor are quipped with this system but Atlantis is not. Is there any reason as to why the SSPTS is not included on Atlantis?
