There are three opportunities for Columbia's return to the Kennedy
Space Center on Friday morning. The targeted landing time is 6:19
a.m. central, with back-up opportunities at 7:55 a.m. and 9:31 a.m.
Mission managers are evaluating the long-range weather forecast for
Friday to determine if it will be acceptable for landing at KSC.
Current predictions call for low, broken and scattered clouds, and a
chance of rain and gusty winds. The alternate landing site at Edwards
Air Force Base in California, will not be called up to support a
Friday landing, but weather conditions at Edwards are expected to be
acceptable throughout the weekend.
