Challenger's successful landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California's desert does not change NASA's plans to use KSC as its primary landing site, said Jesse Moore, head of the NASA shuttle program. "I don't want anyone to draw a conclusion...that all flights of the shuttle program will go to Edwards," Moore said. "The runways here certainly offer us a lot of additional margin. Our objective is to land as many flights as we possibly can back at Kennedy Space Center," Moore said. He also said that stress gauges attached to Challenger's landing gear should provide NASA with the data it needs to deal with the KSC-type landing conditions." Challenger was expected to return to KSC from California on May 11. (TODAY, May 7, 1985)

Challenger appeared to weather its recently completed weeklong mission without any serious complications. Examination of Challenger's tires, brakes and heat-resistant tiles have uncovered only minor damage to the orbiter following its May 6 touchdown at Edwards Air Force Base in California. A piece of thermal blanket loosened and curled up from Challenger's right orbital maneuvering pod and at least 50 tiles were damaged, NASA spokesmen said. (TODAY, May 8, 1985)
