STS-112 Atlantis undocking from ISS (NASA) The space shuttle Atlantis undocked from the International Space Station on schedule Wednesday morning as the STS-112 mission winds down. Atlantis undocked from the station's Destiny module at 9:13 am EDT (1313 GMT) while the two spacecraft flew over Russia. After moving a short distance away from the station, Atlantis flew partway around the station to perform a visual inspection before moving away for good about two hours after undocking. The undocking was captured on video by a new television camera mounted on the S1 truss segment the Atlantis crew added to the station during the mission; the camera provide a new perspective on the docking not previously seen. Atlantis is scheduled to land at the Kennedy Space Center at 11:45 am EDT (1545 GMT) Friday, with early weather forecasts predicting acceptable weather for landing.
