CAPER CANAVERAL (Reuter) - The space shuttle Endeavour landed safely on a sunny Florida morning yesterday after a six-day satellite delivery mission during which the astronauts played with toys and walked in space. The shuttle, briefly delayed by fog, touched down at the Kennedy Space Centre on 96th orbit with Air Force Colonel John Casper at the controls.

While in space, the crew, four men and a woman, had also placed a dollars 200m (pounds 125m) government communications satellite in orbit.
