STS-105 Discovery landing at KSC The space shuttle Discovery safely landed in Florida Wednesday afternoon, one orbit later than planned. The shuttle touched down on Runway 15 at the Kennedy Space Center at 2:23 pm EDT (1823 GMT). The landing was originally scheduled for 12:47 pm EDT (1647 GMT), but was postponed when an isolated shower formed near the runway. The shower dissipated in time to permit the second landing attempt. The landing completes the 12-day STS-105 mission, returning to Earth the International Space Station's Expedition Two crew. The next shuttle mission will not take place until late November, when the shuttle Endeavour launches to replace the Expedition Three crew that Discovery brought to the station this month.
