There has been no (public) discussion of an early landing on NASA select
today (crew have just woken up). The APU problem was declared something
of a non-issue as the APU's are powered down whilst on orbit (ie don't
affect the time spent on orbit). The only discussion concerned a change
in procedure for powering the APU (number 3) back up as part of the
re-entry preparations.
