Washington, Feb 20 (ANI): Reports indicate that Space shuttle Endeavour and its six-member crew are expected to return to Earth on Sunday, February 21, after a 14-day mission.

NASA managers will evaluate weather conditions at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida before permitting Endeavour to land.

If Endeavour lands on Feb 21 in Florida as scheduled, NASA officials will hold a briefing to discuss the mission no earlier than midnight.

After touchdown, the astronauts will undergo routine physical examinations and meet with their families.

Because of the late hour, the crew will not participate in a post-landing news conference, but a crew statement from the runway is expected.

The news events will be broadcast live on NASA Television and the agency’s Web site.

The NASA News Twitter feed is updated throughout the shuttle mission and landing. (ANI)
