Columbia Arrives Back At Kennedy!

Sat Feb 01, 2003 10:45 pm

 Smile Hi everyone!  Smile

The STS-107 mission that took off on the 16th January is returning to Kennedy Space Centre today. In about 35 minutes, the shuttle will touch down in Florida. Here's the link if you want to watch it live on the web:

Cool link. I assume the cameras go on the field when it gets a bit closer.

And now they turn the camera back on at mission control.

You know I always wondered what would happen if they are landing the shuttle and then all of a sudden the mission control computers put, "The blue screen of death" on that big screen/wall.

You know. I think I just heard them call final at 240,000 feet and 3400 miles.

They just lost the shuttle.

They lost their tracking data and Shuttle should have landed 2 1/2 minutes ago!!!
