SPACE CENTER, Houston (AP) -- Early weather reports Tuesday indicated Mother Nature was finally being cooperative with efforts to bring the space shuttle Atlantis back to Earth after two days of delays.
"We do have a 'go' forecast for (the Kennedy Space Center in Florida) at this time," Mission Control told shuttle commander Kenneth Cockrell. "Just want to confirm that there's no risk of clouds moving into the picture that we're not expecting."
Flight controllers were aiming for an early Tuesday afternoon touchdown at the Kennedy Space Center.
