Space shuttle Atlantis will stay aloft until at least tomorrow due to adverse weather conditions in Florida, delaying Needham native Sunita Williams' return after six months in space, NASA officials said.
"Thunderstorms in the vicinity of Kennedy forced flight controllers to wave off both opportunities today," an update posted on NASA's web site states. "Controllers and the Spaceflight Meteorology Group will closely monitor forecasts for Friday’s opportunities in Florida and at Edwards Air Force Base in California."
