Astronaut homecoming celebration planned

Sunday, November 29, 2009

The homecoming celebration for the Atlantis astronauts will be held Monday.

The crew arrived back in Houston yesterday after landing in Florida Friday. Astronaut Randolph Bresnik rushed home to see his baby girl, Abigail. She was born in Houston last weekend, while her father orbited the Earth.

The Atlantis mission to the International Space Station was successful. Astronauts performed three spacewalks to install equipment and make repairs. The biggest problem was a series of false alarms on the ISS.
