Space shuttle Discovery headed home


www.reuters.com

Space shuttle Discovery undocked from the International Space Station on Monday after an 11-day stay during which astronauts made a risky repair to a solar panel and delivered a new module to the outpost.

Discovery, with pilot George Zamka at the helm, gently pulled away from the station 218 miles above the Pacific Ocean to begin a two-day journey back to Earth

The shuttle launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on October 23 and is scheduled to land there at 1:02 p.m. EST on Wed.
