Atlantis home today, storms permitting
NASA eyes weather at Kennedy Space Center
Atlantis has two "landing opportunities" at 14:00 GMT and 15:39 GMT, but weather conditions could prove "problematic " for a return to the Kennedy Space Center.
NASA forecasts indicate "a broken cloud layer at 4000 feet and a chance for thunderstorms within 30 nautical miles of the shuttle runway".
The mission control team will assess the situation before giving the shuttle crew a "go".
Should they deem the weather too inclement, Atlantis has four possible landing opportunities tomorrow - two at Kennedy and two at Edwards Air Force Base in California. ®
