STS-134 Landing Trajectory for 2:35 am Attempt

Endeavour’s landing trajectory for 2:35 am EDT is provided on this graphic. Watch the landing live on NASA TV at SSEP.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

“The path of the landing attempt will take the shuttle across Central America and Mexico, into the Gulf of Mexico west of Cuba and across the state of Florida, coming up from the southwest around Bonita Springs, then across Polk and Osceola counties south of Kissimmee and into Brevard County.

Those in downtown Orlando and south might hear the double sonic boom as the orbiter makes its descent. Those directly under the path in Central Florida should hear the boom strongest 10 minutes and less leading up to landing. The boom can be heard about 40 miles away from the path.”

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
