The Space Shuttle Columbia nears touchdown on the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) runway at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC), after completing almost four days of a scheduled 16-day mission in Earth- orbit.

A problem with one of three fuel cells led to an early landing for the seven-member Microgravity Science Laboratory 1 (MSL-1) crew. Touchdown occurred at 1:33:11 p.m. (EDT), April 8, 1997.

Onboard Columbia were James D. Halsell, Jr., Susan L. Still, Janice E. Voss, Donald A. Thomas, Michael L. Gernhardt, Roger K. Crouch and Gregory T. Linteris.
