> EDWARDS, Calif. - A week after landing at Edwards Air Force Base, 
> Calif., NASA's space shuttle Atlantis is about to make its 
> cross-country journey back to Kennedy Space Center, Fla. 
>
> Mounted on a modified Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft, Atlantis is 
> expected to be flown back to Florida this weekend. Due to the fluid 
> nature of preparing Atlantis for this ferry flight and changing 
> weather conditions, the exact date and time of departure are still to 
> be determined. However, the latest information about the flight will 
> be available by telephone at 321-867-2525. Current flight information 
> also will be posted on the space shuttle's main Web site at: 
>
> http://www.nasa.gov/shuttle
>
> NASA Television will provide live coverage of Atlantis' departure and 
> arrival. For NASA TV downlink, the schedule of ferry flight coverage 
> and streaming video information, visit:

> Strict flight weather restrictions may cause unexpected changes to the 
> flight path and arrival time of the shuttle in Florida. All media 
> should be at the Kennedy News Center two hours ahead of the announced 
> arrival time for transport to the Shuttle Landing Facility. 
>
> Shuttle Atlantis and its seven astronauts landed in California on June 
> 22 after completing a 14-day mission, designated STS-117, to the 
> International Space Station. For more information about Atlantis' 
> flight or crew, visit the shuttle's main Web site.
