STS134: Endeavour headed home.

Departing Shuttle from ISS Camera.

Endeavour undocked from the ISS about 11:55 p.m. MDT Sunday night. It slowly moved away and around the station. Then came the encore! The shuttle approached the station again, on a practice docking maneuver, in order to test a new sensor installed on the station. The new sensor will help future docking attempts by spacecraft carrying supplies and crew to the ISS.

Endeavour's mission will end late tomorrow night when the orbiter touches down in darkness at the Kennedy Space Center. Landing is scheduled for about 12:35 a.m. Wednesday morning.
