Following the landing, veteran space traveler Shannon Lucid began a
series of medical evaluations and data collection in support of her
historic, record breaking flight. Atlantis traveled about 3.9 million
miles during its 10 day flight. Because the landing occurred at the
end of the crew's work day, the six astronauts will remain in Florida
overnight and will return to Ellington Field in Houston in mid- to
late afternoon Friday.
