Discovery crew says farewell to ISS

Closing the hatch between Discovery and the space station, the space shuttle crew took the first step on its return to Earth.

"We enjoyed working with them. We're really sad to let them go, but it's time," said ISS Commander Oleg Kotov.

"We hope we didn't tear up your house too much. We tried to do a good job of cleaning when we left," said Shuttle Commander Alan Poindexter. "We'd all love to stay."

Discovery's crew now prepares for an 8:52 a.m. undocking. It was the second and last time 13 humans will be aboard the ISS.
