NASA`s space shuttle program to end tomorrow
Washington: Space shuttle Atlantis has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) and is scheduled to make its final landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Thursday, ending NASA’ space shuttle program spanning three decades.
It also marks the completion of a 13-day mission to supply the ISS for the post-shuttle era.
Thursday``s Kennedy landing opportunities are at 5:56 a.m. and 7:32
Atlantis’ entry flight control team, led by Flight Director Tony Ceccacci, will evaluate weather conditions at the landing site before giving approval to Atlantis to return.
If the shuttle is unable to come home Thursday, additional opportunities are available on Friday at Kennedy and at the backup landing site, Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The events will be broadcast live on NASA TV and the agency`s website.
