Endeavour finally lands
Posted: Sat, Dec 7, 2002, 4:24 PM ET (2124 GMT)
STS-113: Endeavour landing at KSC (NASA) The space shuttle Endeavour landed Saturday afternoon at the Kennedy Space Center after three days of poor weather kept the shuttle in orbit. Endeavour touched down at KSC at 2:37 pm EST (1937 GMT) on the first of two landing opportunities Saturday in Florida. Endeavour had been trying to land since Wednesday, but poor weather in Florida kept the shuttle from landing. NASA had been trying to land the shuttle in Florida to avoid the cost and schedule delays involved with transporting the shuttle from California, but by Saturday NASA was willing to land the shuttle at Edwards Air Force Base in California if the Florida weather did not cooperate. The next shuttle mission is scheduled for launch in mid-January when Columbia will launch on a non-ISS dedicated science mission.
