STS-120: ISS after undocking (NASA) The space shuttle Discovery undocked from the International Space Station on Monday morning after completing a mission to install a new station module and repair a damaged solar panel. Discovery undocked from the station at 5:32 am EST (1032 GMT) and flew around the station, performing a photographic survey, before departing the station's vicinity.
