Space shuttle Atlantis and its crew will stay in space another day after bad weather prevented them from landing Saturday at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
NASA Flight Director Norm Knight and the entry team will evaluate weather conditions at Kennedy before permitting the shuttle to land. If the weather is not acceptable for a return to Kennedy, the team will look to land at the secondary landing site, Edwards Air Force Base in California. White Sands Space Harbor is not expected to be activated tomorrow.
