Atlantis Undocks From Space Station

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Shuttle Atlantis left the International Space Station on Sunday after its 11th and probably final trip there.

The vehicle undocked from the station at 11:22 a.m. to begin the trip back to Kennedy Space Center. It's scheduled to arrive Wednesday at 8:35 a.m.

Atlantis is wrapping up its last scheduled flight before the shuttle program is retired. The final two missions are scheduled to be completed before the end of the year.

During this trip the shuttle spent seven days and 54 minutes docked with the station.
