I think there is a discrepancy with either the display or the orbit elements. I am
watching NASA TV and they keep saying Landing at 7:01 EST but it is now ^:47 and the
shuttle is over Australia, about 45 minutes out. The latest elements show it should be
over texas as you said and as the 7::01 touchdown time would indicate but they must have
had another burn earlier and looks like landing will be about 7;30 (my guess)
