Endeavor To Land Tomorrow

The Endeavor shuttle is scheduled to land in the Cape Canaveral space centre, Flo., at about 5 pm, Moscow time, tomorrow, reports Sergei Puzanov, NASA spokesman at Russia's mission control centre. The Endeavor finished a 12-day mission to the international space station to deliver technical equipment. Lieutenant-Colonel Yuri Lonchakov of the Russian Air Force is on the crew. The Endeavor astronauts are checking hydraulic equipment and auxiliary automatic landing devices. Captain Kent Rominger will control the craft by hand before the landing. It is raining in Cape Canaveral. The navigation service intends two landing attempts--an initial for 17.04, Moscow time. If the sky remains overcast by that time, the shuttle will make another circuit for another attempt, 18.38. If the weather gets quite bad, the Endeavor will land at the Edwards Air Force base, California, says Sergei Puzanov.
