Weather Delays Landing; Next Opportunity on Tuesday

Space Shuttle

Continued low cloud coverage at Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility forced flight controllers to pass on STS-131's second landing opportunity Monday.

This was the last opportunity for space shuttle Discovery to land today.

The next Kennedy Space Center landing opportunity is Tuesday with a deorbit burn at 6:28 a.m. EDT and landing at 7:34 a.m.

Edwards Air Force Base in California also is expected to be called up for Tuesday landing opportunities.
