KSC-07-S-00002 (01/16/2007) --- Next on the NASA Space Shuttle Status Report: A new year begins. Space Shuttle Discovery makes it home for the holidays, and NASA rings in the new year with a full schedule of space shuttle launches. And, a spring fling. Orbiter Atlantis is ramping up for a March flight to the International Space Station. Plus, ready for the limelight. After nearly five years on the ground, NASA's orbiter Endeavour will fly in 2007. This is your in-depth look at NASA's orbiter fleet and the NASA Space Shuttle Status Report starts right now! I'm Greg Gaddis, NASA test director, and this is the Space Shuttle Status Report. Read more...

KSC-06PP-2896 (12/22/2006) --- KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- Space Shuttle Discovery touches down on an illuminated Runway 15 at NASA Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility as the sun sets on the shortest day of the year, concluding mission STS-116. Main gear touchdown was at 5:32 p.m. EST. Nose gear touchdown was at 5:32:12 p.m. and wheel stop was at 5:32:52 p.m. At touchdown -- nominally about 2,500 ft. beyond the runway threshold -- the orbiter is traveling at a speed ranging from 213 to 226 mph. Discovery traveled 5,330,000 miles, landing on orbit 204. Read more...
