STS-122: DEORBIT BURN!

Space shuttle Atlantis has fired its engines, slowing it enough to drop out of orbit. NASA reports:

Atlantis Headed Home

Mission Control gave STS-122 Commander Steve Frick the "go" for deorbit burn, now complete, putting the crew of Atlantis on course for a 9:07 a.m. EST landing at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Weather conditions at Kennedy Space Center remain favorable for today's first landing opportunity. All systems aboard Atlantis are performing normally, and the crew was given a "go" to begin fluid loading.
