Crew prepares shuttle for early landing

After leaving the international space station a day early on Sunday, Endeavour’s crew inspected their ship one final time to make sure it would be prepared for the fiery descent through the atmosphere.

The astronauts used a laser-tipped boom to hunt for possible micrometeorite damage to the shuttle’s wing and nose that might have occurred during the nine days the shuttle was docked to the space station.

At supper tonight, my dad wondered aloud who boarded up the space station with plywood in preparation for Hurricane Dean. My question is, “How the heck did they KNOW they were gonna need all those storm materials from Home Depot?” smile_wink
