UPDATE 2: Shuttle Lands Safely

UPDATE 2: The shuttle landed safe and sound.

UPDATE: The weather improved and the shuttle was given the “go” to land at KSC at 9:08 am EDT this morning.

ORIGINAL STORY: SHUTTLE STILL TRYING TO GET HOME. NASA managers had to delay Discovery’s landing once more this morning because of bad weather at Kennedy Space Center (KSC). They passed on the first landing opportunity, but hope STS-131 will be able to land at KSC at the second landing opportunity at 9:08 am EDT. The deorbit burn would take place at 7:56 am. Otherwise, the shuttle will land at Edwards Air Force Base. Follow the shuttle’s progress at NASA’s space shuttle website.
