STS-104 landing of Atlantis at KSC (NASA) The space shuttle Atlantis completed its mission to the International Space Station Tuesday night with a landing at the Kennedy Space Center. Atlantis touched down at 11:39 pm EDT Tuesday (0339 GMT Wednesday), completing the STS-104 mission. The landing had been delayed by one day because of clouds and rain, but the weather cooperated on the first of two landing attempts Tuesday night. The elapsed time of the mission was 12 days, 18 hours, and 35 minutes. The next shuttle mission is STS-105, the launch of Discovery on a mission to bring the Expedition Three crew to the station and return the Expedition Two crew to Earth. That mission is scheduled for launch no earlier than August 9.
