Weather Delays Atlantis' Landing Today

The space shuttle Atlantis has been delayed from the 10AM EDT landing time until 11:39 am this morning due to a rain band over the north end of Cape Canaveral.

Rain along with heavy clouds and some wind are also forecast during this next landing opportunity, and at around 10AM, Mission Control will likely wave off landing Atlantis until Saturday morning.

Now at 10 days, 17 hours into the flight of Atlantis on mission STS-125, we are standing by for
STS-125 Entry Flight Director Norm Knight's call here in the next two hours.
