Shuttle Landing Delayed Until Friday

The space shuttle Atlantis was supposed to land Thursday afternoon, but this was called off because of bad weather. The region surrounding the Kennedy Space Center was all thunderstorms.

The next landing opportunity will be 2:18 pm on Friday. If that’s not going to happen, they can try again one orbit later, landing at 3:55 pm. If that doesn’t work, there are three opportunities for Atlantis to land at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast doesn’t look so good: thunderstorms at Kennedy, and high winds at Edwards. Perhaps New Mexico then?

Good luck Atlantis.
