Atlantis Lands on Earth

Space shuttle Atlantis and its seven astronauts are back on Earth.

The shuttle landed at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Friday morning, swooping through a clear sky. It was a chilly homecoming: The temperature was in the low 50s.

The touchdown ended an 11-day flight for Atlantis. The astronauts spent a week stockpiling the International Space Station with big spare parts.

For Nicole Stott, it's the end of a three-month station mission. She can't wait to see her husband and 7-year-old son, and eat pizza. Fellow astronaut Randolph Bresnik has even bigger plans: to hold his newborn daughter for the first time. But he'll have to wait until Saturday. Wife Rebecca stayed home in Houston with their daughter and young son.

The Associated Press  has contributed to the report.
