NASA Glenn Visitor Center to Host Shuttle Discovery Landing
 
 
Space Shuttle Discovery and its astronauts are now set to return to Earth Tuesday morning, August 9, with the first attempt at Kennedy Space Center at 5:07 a.m. The public and media are invited to view the scheduled landing at the NASA Glenn Research Center's Visitor Center.

Doors to the Visitor Center will open at 4:30 a.m. Admission is free. The Visitor Center is wheelchair accessible. Access to the Glenn Visitor Center is limited to U.S. citizens. All adult visitors must present government-issued photo identification upon entering the Center's main gate. All vehicles are subject to inspection.

There are several opportunities to land tomorrow, including two at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and two at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

Due to low clouds at the Kennedy Space Center landing site, Mission Control Houston waved off both landing opportunities for Space Shuttle Discovery today. STS-114 Commander Eileen Collins and the rest of the crew aboard Space Shuttle Discovery will return the orbiter to normal flight operations for another day.
