Space shuttle Endeavour pilot Terrry Virts pulled the spacecraft away from the forward docking port of the Space Station at 7:54 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) after nine days of adding to the orbiting structure and other activities dedicated to finishing it this year.
ISS Expedition 22 commander Jeffrey Williams made the formal announcement at the departure of the STS-130 crew.
Williams stated 'United States space shuttle Endeavour, departing.' He then rang the bell located in the Harmony module.
The New Tranquility module and the Cupola were two structures added to the ISS during the STS-130 mission of the NASA astronauts.
ISS Expedition 22 flight engineer Timothy Creamer added, 'Zambo, it's been good having you, sorry to see you guys leave.'
'Zambo' refers to the nickname of space shuttle commander George David Zamka, who responded back, "We'll watch and wave."
