Atlantis lands at KSC The space shuttle Atlantis successfully landed Tuesday afternoon at Edwards Air Force Base in California after two extra days in orbit caused by poor weather. The shuttle landed at 3:33 pm EST (2033 GMT) after weather kept the shuttle from landing in Florida for three consecutive days dating back to Sunday. The landing is the second at Edwards in three flights after 23 consecutive landings at KSC, NASA's preferred shuttle landing facility. The landing brings to an end STS-98, a mission to add the Destiny lab module to the International Space Station. The next shuttle mission, STS-102, is scheduled for launch March 8.
