Endeavor lands safely in Florida


Florida, Aug. 22: Space shuttle Endeavour returned to its Florida home port on Tuesday, touching down safely at the Kennedy Space Centre following a hectic but successful 13-day mission to the International Space Station. The shuttle made a smooth landing despite a ding in the belly caused when a piece of foam broke off during lift-off. The shuttle returned a day earlier than scheduled, after mission managers decided to cut short its space station visit because of Hurricane Dean.
