NASA's Shuttle Atlantis set for return to Kennedy Space center

EDWARDS, Calif. - A week after landing at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., NASA's space shuttle Atlantis is about to make its cross-country journey back to Kennedy Space Center, Fla.

Mounted on a modified Boeing 747 shuttle carrier aircraft, Atlantis is expected to be flown back to Florida this weekend. Due to the fluid nature of preparing Atlantis for this ferry flight and changing weather conditions, the exact date and time of departure are still to be determined.

Current flight information also will be posted on the space shuttle's main Web site at: http://www.nasa.gov/shuttle
