Kennedy Landings Waved Off, Discovery to Land at Edwards
Fri, 11 Sep 2009 02:42:59 PM CDT
Mission Control has decided to target Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., for today's landing since the weather at Kennedy is unstable. The deorbit burn is timelined to begin at 7:47 p.m. EDT for an 8:53 p.m. landing at Edwards. The burn lasts three to four minutes, slowing Discovery enough to begin its descent.
