Shuttle Set to Land Tomorrow Morning, Weather Could be a Problem

April 18th, 2010

Space Shuttle Discovery undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) yesterday and is preparing for landing at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) tomorrow, Monday, at 8:48 am EDT.   The seven member crew of STS-131 delivered seven tons of equipment and supplies to the ISS during the 10 days it was docked there.  The weather forecast for KSC tomorrow morning is iffy, however.   There are two landing opportunities at KSC in the morning, and two more Tuesday morning.  The shuttle also could be diverted to Edwards Air Force Base, CA if necessary, with three landing opportunities there on Tuesday.
