NASA scrubs Thursday shuttle landing
Posted: Thu, Dec 5, 2002, 1:39 PM ET (1839 GMT)
STS-113 pach (NASA) NASA shuttle managers decided Thursday morning not to make any landing attempts of the shuttle Endeavour on Thursday because of poor weather in Florida. NASA had two opportunities to land the shuttle Thursday afternoon at the Kennedy Space Center, but forecasts of rain, clouds, and wind led managers to decide not to try either opportunity, choosing to conserve propellant for future landing attempts. NASA is planning to try to bring the shuttle down in Florida again on Friday, with two chances at 1:57 and 3:33 pm EST (1857 and 2033 GMT), but the forecast for Friday remains uncertain. There are no plans to land the shuttle at Edwards Air Force Base in California on Friday, but that site could be activated for a Saturday landing attempt, if needed. Endeavour has enough supplies to remain in orbit through at least Sunday.
