Space shuttle Endeavour undocks from ISS


The astronauts aboard the US space shuttle Endeavour have said their final farewells to the International Space Station after successfully completing their mission.

Earlier, Endeavour broke away from the ISS after delivering a connecting hub and preparing an observation deck or ‘Cupola’ for its first opening.

Now homeward bound, the crew are expected to land in Florida on Sunday.

Four more shuttle missions remain to stock the ISS. NASA is due to retire its three-ship fleet later this year.

The ISS, a near 75 billion euro project involving 16 countries, has been under construction, some 350 kilometres above Earth, since 1998.
