Weather Forecast Favorable for Kennedy Landing
Wed, 20 Jul 2011 18:57:01 GMT
The Spaceflight Meteorology Group is forecasting favorable conditions for the landing of space shuttle Atlantis on Thursday at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. There are two landing opportunities, the first at 5:56 a.m. and the second at 7:32 a.m. Forecasters are aided on landing day by firsthand observations by astronauts flying weather reconnaissance in a Shuttle Training Aircraft. They make practice approaches to the runway flying the same landing pattern as a returning shuttle and can report the details about conditions to the shuttle crew.
