1st Landing Attempt at 6:05pm CDT Delayed
Next Opportunity at 7:39pm CDT

Unstable weather in the Kennedy Space Center area forced flight controllers to pass on STS-123’s first landing opportunity.

The Spaceflight Meteorology Group continues to monitor weather conditions at and around the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Florida spaceport.

If flight controllers give STS-123 the go-ahead to land on the second opportunity, Orbit 249, Commander Dominic Gorie and Pilot Gregory H. Johnson will fire Endeavour’s thrusters at 6:33pm CDT to begin the descent to Florida for a landing at 7:39pm CDT.
UPDATE: 6:40pm CDT
