Endeavour set to land in Florida

FLORIDA - The space shuttle Endeavour has been cleared for reentry to Earth yesterday but uncertain weather conditions in Florida may force it to land in California, NASA officials said Saturday.

"Endeavour looks to me and to the experts in fact to be as clean or even cleaner than any vehicule we have flown," NASA Mission Management Team chairman LeRoy Cain told a press conference.

Just after the Endeavour undocked Friday from the International Space Station (ISS), a final inspection of its nose cap and wing leading edge panels was conducted by camera and laser device.

Cain said that after completing the damage assessment, his team had cleared Endeavour's thermal shield for a safe entry and landing.
