Discovery undocks from the International Space Station

The Space Shuttle Discovery has undocked from the newly overhauled International Space Station and is preparing for a final heat shield inspection before returning to Earth.

Published in Space
Astronauts aboard Space Shuttle Discovery—Space Transportation System-116 (STS-16) mission—are working to fix a troublesome solar array that was first installed onto the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2000 by the STS-97 crew. The port solar array on the P6 truss is causing problems because it is not retracting like is normally should. It is being retracted and placed into a storage box so that astronauts on a future shuttle mission in 2007 can move it to a new location.
