Atlantis lands safely at Kennedy Space Center

Space Shuttle Atlantis has landed safely at the Kennedy Space Center, ending a successful mission to install the European Space Agency's Columbus module on the International Space Station.

The landing frees up the US Navy for their attempt to intercept a failed spy satellite as soon as tonight.

Stay tuned for more details later today.
