Weather delays landing of shuttle
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Thunderstorms forced NASA to postpone Monday's homecoming for the three men who are returning to Earth after a record-setting stay of more than six months aboard the international space station.
More rain was expected for today's landing attempt by space shuttle Endeavour, and gusty wind was forecast at the backup site in California's Mojave Desert.
U.S. astronauts Daniel Bursch and Carl Walz and their Russian commander, Yuri Onufrienko, logged their 194th day in orbit Monday. The Americans broke NASA's 188-day space endurance record last week.
