Endeavour Makes Rare Night Landing

Ad Feedback

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The Endeavour space shuttle and its six-member crew landed safely late Sunday night at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

"Congratulations to you and the crew on an outstanding mission," astronaut Rick Sturckow radioed, moments after the shuttle landed at 10:20 p.m.

Earlier forecasts that would have postponed the touchdown by a day cleared, allowing Endeavor Commander George Zamka and pilot Terry Virts to land the shuttle.

With only four more shuttle flights to go, astronauts were feeling a little nostalgic when they returned to earth from their two-week mission at the International Space Station.

The six-member crew helped install Tranquility, a new room with a dome-shaped observation deck that provides a spectacular panoramic view of the Earth.

The shuttle's next mission is slated for April 5.
