Space Shuttle to Land Today

Space shuttle Discovery is on track to land today at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. First opportunity is 1:02 p.m. EST which would put the first maneuver at 11:59 a.m. Next opportunity would be around 2:32 p.m.

This mission has proven how much skill it takes to be an astronaut. These professionals are in a place where they can’t just drive to the store to pick up some extra parts. When something goes wrong or breaks, as in the solar panel that happened on this mission, they have to work with what is around them. It is a remarkable example of planning for everything.
