Station and Endeavour Crews Say Goodbye

An orbital sunrise is featured in this image photographed by Expedition 22 Flight Engineer Soichi Noguchi from a window in the newly-installed cupola of the International Space Station.

The Expedition 22 and STS-130 crews bid one another farewell, and the hatches between the two spacecraft closed at 3:08 a.m. EST Friday. Space shuttle Endeavour is scheduled to undock from the International Space Station at 7:54 p.m.
