Endeavour torna a casa

While flying 208 miles above the Atlantic Ocean west of Mauritania and the western Sahara, space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station at 7:54 p.m. EST, nine days, 19 hours and 48 minutes after docking on Feb. 10. Shuttle pilot Terry Virts will grab the stick and perform a fly-around of the station, enabling his crewmates to conduct a photo survey of the complex. The station now is 98 percent complete by volume, 90 percent by mass.
Weather permitting, the deorbit burn is planned for 9:13 p.m. Sunday, leading to a landing at 10:16 p.m. at Kennedy Space Center’s Shuttle Landing Facility.
