Landing at Edwards

Due to bad weather Discovery didn't land at Kennedy on schedule, and was diverted into Edwards Air Force Base a day late. So I didn't miss the landing like I thought I would, and I'm watching it live, via the web feed...


Mission Control Centre at Houston

Update: Discovery is now approaching the Californian coast and is 135 miles from Edwards...


Tracking Discovery inbound to Edwards

Update: At 35 miles and 4 minutes to go to touch down I've just lost the web feed. Presumably the server has crashed under the load, although the feed had been holding up well until this point.

Update: Successful touchdown for Discovery...


Down, safe, and in Infrared, at Edwards
