For the second day in a row NASA has postponed the landing of the shuttle Atlantis because of poor weather conditions at the Kennedy Space Center. High winds, clouds, and approaching rain forced NASA to scuttle two landing attempts at 1:26 pm and 3:03 pm EST (1826 and 2003 GMT). NASA will make an attempt to land the shuttle tomorrow either at KSC or at Edwards Air Force Base in California, where the weather has also been too poor to permit a landing. Two landing attempts are scheduled at KSC at 12:27 and 2:02 pm EST (1727 and 1902 GMT), with two more available at Edwards at 3:33 and 5:09 pm EST (2033 and 2209 GMT). Atlantis has enough supplies to remain in orbit through Wednesday, and weather conditions in Florida are forecast to improve tomorrow.
