The crew aboard Space Shuttle Discovery was awakened at 8:39 p.m. EDT today to prepare for landing Tuesday morning.

"We sure hope we get our feet on the ground today," Mission Specialist Wendy Lawrence radioed down after the wake-up call.

Low clouds at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida prevented the orbiter from landing Monday. Similar weather conditions are expected for the Tuesday landing opportunities in Florida, so all three primary Shuttle landing sites will be activated.

KSC will remain the preferred landing site. Edwards Air Force Base, California, will be second in preference for landing and White Sands Space Harbor, New Mexico, will be third in preference. Two Shuttle landing opportunities will be available at each site.

Weather forecasters will be watching the skies over Florida for the first landing opportunity, which would begin with a deorbit engine firing at 4:01 a.m. EDT and lead to a touchdown at KSC at 5:07 a.m. EDT.

Letīs hope the chicken wire and duct tape holds up on re-entry. And that the construction paper holding the window in place doesnīt fly off.

So they can lands safely.
