Shuttle due home

Space shuttle Discovery is due to return home today which will end it’s 13 day mission STS-121. The weather is looking good for a landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 0914 EDT. The crew will fire the shuttle’s engines at 0807 to begin the orbiter’s descent.

The landing will bring to an end a mission that the US space agency (Nasa) hopes will help reduce safety concerns over the shuttle programme that have been heightened since the loss of the Columbia ship.

More news as we find it!
