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. The shuttle crew will spend time on Monday checking the leading edges of the orbiter's wings for any damage in advance of their reentry and landing, currently scheduled for 1:02 pm EST (1802 GMT) Wednesday at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
