Here Comes the Boom! Atlantis to Land at Edwards
NASA has decided to land Space Shuttle Atlantis here in Southern California this morning, after first scrapping plans to land in Florida yesterday in favor of landing here, and then opting to hold off the landing for one more day in hopes of more desirable weather back in Florida. But Atlantis is coming in for its landing here, at Edwards Air Force Base. "So Cal residents should anticipate twin sonic booms just prior to 8:39 PDT," the Los Angeles Fire Department's Brian Humphrey tells us. Let us know if you hear them, and where you are! And welcome home, Atlantis.
