Submission + - Atlantis lands smoothely at Edwards Airport (

Abhishek writes: "Space Shuttle Atlantis landed smoothely at Edwards Air Force Base, California concluding a successful assembly mission to the International Space Station. Mission Specialists Patrick Forrester, John "Danny" Olivas, Jim Reilly and Steven Swanson conducted a total of four spacewalks to activate the S3/S4 and to retract the P6 arrays. During the third spacewalk, Olivas repaired an out of position thermal blanket on the left orbital maneuvering system pod. Landing also marked the end of a record-setting spaceflight by Mission Specialist Suni Williams. She broke the record for the longest spaceflight by a woman early in the morning on June 16."
