The Discovery Crew woke up at 2030 EDT and immediately began
preparing for a planned 0447 landing at Kennedy Space Center Monday
Morning. A mission full of tense moments will hopefully come to a
"We're looking forward to coming home," Commander Eileen Collins
radioed to Mission Control upon crew wakeup.
Collins and her crewmates immediately began preparing the
orbiter and themselves for landing. Their first landing opportunity
is at Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 0447 Monday. If weather
prohibits landing on that orbit, they will have another opportunity
about 90 minutes later.
If the crew gets the go-ahead from Mission Control for the first
landing opportunity, Collins and Pilot Jim Kelly will execute an
engine burn that drops Discovery from orbit at 0340.
ANN wishes them a safe descent and landing.
