Landing postponed until Tuesday morning

Discovery's landing has been pushed back a day, due to weather issues at the Kennedy Space Center.

Tuesday's landing opportunities include 5:07 a.m. EDT and 6:43 a.m. EDT at Kennedy, and two times each for Edwards air force base and Northrup landing strip at White Sands.

There is a strong desire to land Discovery at Kennedy in Florida, as other landing sites will create schedule delays that will make a September launch of Atlantis difficult to achieve. So keep your fingers crossed for good weather over Florida tomorrow morning!
