(KENNEDY SPACE CENTER) -- NASA hopes to land Shuttle Atlantis at Edwards Air Force Base at 3:49 P-M.
For the second time today, rain has prevented the space shuttle from landing at the Kennedy Space Center.
Managers have now decided to prepare to land instead in California. The first landing attempt at California's Edwards Air Force Base would be at 3:49 p-m, Eastern time. But if the weather clears up over Florida before then, NASA could instead try bringing the shuttle into Kennedy at 3:55 p-m.
The crew has three chances left today to land, but the shuttle has enough power for its systems to orbit until Sunday.
