Oops… this is happening in just a few minutes…
Prepare for a double sonic boom.
Overcast skies in “The Sunshine State” have forced the Space Shuttle Atlantis to opt for a landing window here in California at Edwards Airforce Base. The earliest scheduled window for the touchdown is 3:49 p.m.
If poor weather conditions strike, the Shuttle could again postpone its landing until tomorrow at Edwards or at White Sands in New Mexico.
