Bad Weather Delays Shuttle Landing Again
COMING BACK TO EARTH
Experience has shown that is relatively easy for human beings to lose their adaptation to gravity on long duration space flights, but harder to regain it upon return home to Earth. Dr. Alan Hargens at the University of California San Diego and formerly at NASA Ames Research Center is exploring ways to help the re-adaptation process. Jennifer Laing looks at the research of a man who has studied everything from giraffes to identical twins in his quest to develop effective countermeasures for living in microgravity.

BAD WEATHER DELAYS SHUTTLE LANDING AGAIN
For the second day in a row, high winds at Cape Canaveral have forced NASA to cancel the landing of the Space Shuttle Atlantis. The shuttle will attempt to land at Cape Canaveral later today, but there is also an option to land at Edwards Air Force Base in California; unfortunately, cloudy weather might be a problem there too. The final option is for the shuttle to land at White Sands, New Mexico - only one shuttle, STS-3 in March 1982, has ever had to land there.
