Hatch Closure Underway; Undocking at 3:53 pm ET

The two crews aboard the international space said their good-byes, especially flight engineer Sandy Magnus who has lived aboard the orbiting complex since last November, as Discovery prepare for departure today.

Discovery will depart her port-of-call shortly following eight days at the space station, which saw the installation of the final huge set of solar arrays and three spacewalks in support of station construction. Undocking time remains scheduled for 3:53 pm EDT.
