Space Shuttle Endeavour is moments away from touching down on runway 33 at
the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center after completing the 13-day, 18-hour, 48-minute, 5.74-million mile STS-113 mission to the
International Space Station.
Main gear touchdown was at 2:37:12 p.m. EST, nose gear touchdown was at 2:37:23 p.m., and
wheel stop was at 2:38:25 p.m. Poor weather conditions thwarted landing opportunities until a fourth day, the first time in
Shuttle program history that a landing has been waved off for three consecutive days.
The vehicle carries the STS-113
crew, Commander James Wetherbee, Pilot Paul Lockhart and Mission Specialists Michael Lopez-Alegria and John
Herrington, as well as the returning Expedition Five crew, Commander Valeri Korzun, ISS Science Officer Peggy Whitson
and Flight Engineer Sergei Treschev. The installation of the P1 truss on the International Space Station was accomplished
during the mission.
