Endeavour undocks from ISS

ISS after STS-100 undocking The space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station Sunday afternoon, clearing the way for Monday's docking by a Soyuz spacecraft. Endeavour undocked on schedule at 1:34 pm EDT (1734 GMT) and circled the station for about an hour before firing its thrusters to move away from the station. The undocking was originally scheduled for Saturday but was pushed back a day to allow the shuttle and station crews to get three failed computers working on the station. By early Sunday all three command and control computers that failed earlier in the week were back online, although only one had a working hard drive. With the shuttle gone, a Soyuz spacecraft launched Saturday has been cleared to dock with the station at 3:52 am EDT (0752 GMT) Monday morning. Endeavour will spend one more full day in orbit before landing at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida, at 9:03 am EDT (1303 GMT) Tuesday, May 1.
