Atlantis Gearing Up for Return
Astronauts on the space shuttle Atlantis are gearing up for their return to Earth on Friday. Today, astronauts will perform routine landing gear tests to help ensure a safe return. While the Atlantis is scheduled to return Friday, the weather in Florida may not cooperate and its landing may be delayed.
Additionally, astronauts are scheduled to testify briefly from orbit about NASA’s budget before the Senate Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee. Also, a interesting article regarding NASA’s budget for the Hubble can be accessed here.
