STS134: Time to go home.

Endeavour cockpit.

Well, the time has come and gone. It was time for the crew of STS134 to say goodbye to the crew of new Expedition 29 on the ISS. After loading items onto the shuttle that needed to be returned from ISS for study, the crews met together for the last time for a farewell ceremony.

STS134 and Expedition 28 crews.

After a brief conference the crew of Endeavour headed down into their spacecraft and hatches were secured at about 7:20 a.m. EDT. Time to power up the old gal for one last ride through the bumpy atmosphere. Undocking is scheduled for 11: 50 something EDT tonight.
