NASA says Discovery is go for second landing attempt in Florida


The Space Shuttle Discovery has begun its descent, performing the deorbit burn to bring it into land at Florida's Kennedy Space Center at 5.32pm.


Discovery is returning home after NASA aborted landing attempts at both Kennedy and Edwards Airforce Base in California earlier today due to poor weather conditions, reports SpaceFlight Now.

The shuttle is running on emergency fuel after NASA extended its stay at the International Space Station to repair a stubborn solar panel, using one of the craft's two spare days set aside to allow for landing delays.

With only 24 hours of reserve fuel and unfavourable weather at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, NASA had prepared backup landing sites at Edwards Air Force Base in California and White Sands, New Mexico.
