"Assuming the forecast holds up, Collins plans to fire Discovery's twin 
orbital maneuvering system braking rockets for three minutes and 12 
seconds starting at 3:39:43 a.m. Monday, slowing the ship by 220 mph and 
dropping the far side of its orbit deep into the atmosphere over 
Florida's East Coast.

Flying along a southwest-to-northeast trajectory, Discovery will pass 
above Central America, the Gulf of Mexico and the west coast of Florida 
near Tampa as it glides toward touchdown at the Kennedy Space Center. 
Landing is expected around 4:46:44 a.m. Monday, closing out a 13-day 
voyage spanning 5.3 million miles and 201 complete orbits since blastoff 
July 26.
