Bad Weather Delays Discovery Landing

The astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery will have to wait a day before returning to Earth.

NASA engineers decided to delay today's scheduled landing, citing concerns with low lying clouds over the shuttle's landing site at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Officials say the clouds could pose a visibility problem for the crew as they attempt their landing.

As they prepare to try to land again tomorrow, NASA officials will also decide whether to keep Florida as the landing site or arrange for the shuttle to land at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
