STS 135 : come back Thursday with a tolerable climate
At two days of Atlantis back to Earth, normally provided for 5:56 (local), 11:56 (swiss time), everything seems in good conditions for noticing that Atlantis return home to Cape Canaveral. In any case, all indicators are green on the side of the weather. The big storms of recent days have given way to do place to a large cumulus. Despite a relative humidity of 93%, the climate is bearable in July. At least I got used to it because there is very little variation. Visibility was 7 miles and winds are not very strong. But all this can still change. It is suspicious, because clouds are predicted for Thursday morning.
In case of bad weather, the shuttle can land on the other side of the USA, to the west, to the Edwards base. There, nothing on the horizon in the coming days.
