Atlantis lands at KSC
Posted: Fri, Oct 18, 2002, 2:35 PM ET (1835 GMT)
STS-112 landing (NASA/KSC) The space shuttle Atlantis landed at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida Friday morning, bringing the 11-day STS-112 mission to a successful close. Atlantis touched down at 11:44 am EDT (1544 GMT) with no problems reported. Atlantis completed a 10-day, 20-hour mission to the International Space Station, installing the new S1 segment to the station's truss over the course of three spacewalks. The next shuttle mission is tentatively scheduled for November 10, when the shuttle Endeavour lifts off on STS-113, a mission to add a similar truss segment to the station. That mission may be delayed depending on the status of a Soyuz taxi flight that may be delayed from its scheduled October 27 launch because of a Soyuz rocket launch failure earlier this week.
