The space shuttle and its seven-person crew make a safe landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California, successfully conclucing the first shuttle mission since the Columbia disaster. The shuttle was diverted from a Florida landing by bad weather.
The shuttle landed on the long desert runway in the early morning darkness, a parachute trailing behind. NASA officials have said they will not send up a shuttle again, until they can understand why a large piece of foam fell off during launch. Another flight is scheduled for September.
