Shuttle down.....Progress up.
Endeavour landed yesterday in California instead of Florida due to bad weather on the other side of the country. The shuttle can't fly in rain, or the tiles wold be damaged.
The latest Progress cargo ship docked at the ISS, with a little excitement. There was a problem with the auto-docking system so Yuri Lonchakov had to hand fly (remotely) the spacecraft and do a manual docking. The cargo ship delivered water, supplies, Christmas gifts and probably a bunch of fresh fruit.
