Endeavour undocks from International Space Station

30 may 2011, 18:33
The US space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station late Sunday and headed back to Earth after completing its mission, AFP reports, citing NASA.

The undocking took place at 11:55 pm (0355 GMT Monday), at a time when the space station and shuttle was be 215 miles (350 kilometers) over La Paz, Bolivia, NASA said.

It will be followed by a one-lap fly-around of the station so that the crew can take photos of the space lab.

The six-member crew of the Endeavour -- five US astronauts and Italian Roberto Vittori -- bid farewell to three colleagues on board the space station (ISS) and closed the hatches between the shuttle and station at 7:23 am (1123 GMT) Sunday.

Endeavour's 16-day mission began with the shuttle's launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida on May 16 and will conclude when the shuttle lands back on Earth early on June 1.
