Endeavour has left the International Space Station and is headed home to close out NASA's next-to-last shuttle flight.

Endeavour undocked from the orbiting lab close to midnight
Sunday. The shuttle took a victory lap around the station. Then it
hung around another few hours, testing navigation equipment
intended for a future interplanetary-traveling spacecraft.

The space station astronauts said Endeavour "looks real nice
out there." They beamed down video of the departing shuttle Monday
morning, the last shot ever of Endeavour in orbit.

NASA's youngest shuttle is due back in Florida early Wednesday.
Its next stop after that will be a museum in California for what
many consider to be an early retirement.
