Space shuttle Discovery will return to Earth on Monday.
"Is the vehicle cleared for entry?" Steve Lindsey, Discovery's commander asked after hearing the news.

"That's affirm. I'm being told I can use that word. You are cleared for entry," astronaut Steve Frick in Mission Control radioed back.

Depending on the weather, Discovery will try to land on Monday morning, Florida time.
