Discovery Moments from Undocking - All Go

3:00 pm Update: As the Discovery - international space station complex orbits 223 miles high over the south eastern Pacific Ocean right now [image at right], the crews are nearing the orbiter's undocking in 53 minutes.

Discovery will undock and move belly first in the station & shuttle's direction of travel. The orbiter, flown by pilot Tony Antonelli will move out 400 feet and begin a fly around of the complex.
