It was not immediately clear what had happened to the shuttle. The shuttle’s landing was overdue. It had been scheduled to arrive at the the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 0916 (1416 GMT, 40 menit yang lalu –Koen). Nasa has declared an emergency and there are reports that search and rescue teams have been mobilised. According to Nasa, the shuttle was about 200,000 feet up and travelling at 12,500 mph when contact was lost over north-east Texas.
