Landing Hopes Turn to Today's Second Opportunity
Flight controllers waved off STS-113's first landing opportunity of the
day at Kennedy Space Center, Fla., due to low cloud ceilings and rain.
Now, they turn their attention to today's second and final opportunity,
which begins with a deorbit burn at 1:27 p.m. CST (1931 GMT) and
culminates with a 2:33 p.m. CST (2033 GMT) landing. 

If Endeavour is unable to come home today, four opportunities are
available Saturday -- two in Florida and two at Edwards Air Force Base,
Calif. 

STS-113, which launched Nov. 23, is returning home after a successful
mission to the International Space Station. Endeavour delivered the P1
(P-One) Truss and the Expedition Six crew to the station. Returning to
Earth with STS-113 is the Expedition Five crew.
