Here’s wishing the Atlantis crew all the best for a smooth landing, glitches notwithstanding! At this stage, we hope that the thermal blanket holds
on. I’m particularly interested as Sunitha Williams is an Indian American and Indians are all proud of her.
So was Kalpana Chawla. From India. It was a tragedy of huge proportions when she bravely went down with Columbia.
Way to go Suni. The one billion people of India are with you!
For those interested in the live feed from NASA, here it is…
It's slipped a minimum of an hour and a half for Kennedy. They'll try again at 330pm EST. If they can't make it then they'll start looking at an
Edwards landing. The weather in Florida is awful today though, so I doubt we'll see them come home today.
Going by weather.com they're gonna be landing at Edwards. They're forecasting thunderstorms at Kennedy through next weekend.
The 3:30 attempt was for Kennedy. They're going to do everything the can to get her down at Kennedy, and Edwards is a last resort. They have enough
power to stay up until Sunday as it stands now. They have 5 attempts for Kennedy tomorrow, and if it looks like they'd have to extend another 24
hours, then they'll start looking at Edwards.
