Atlantis commander's farewell to ISS

The US shuttle Atlantis has undocked from the space station and is heading home to Earth for the last time.

When the orbiter lands early on Thursday morning in Florida, it will bring to a close Nasa's 30-year re-usable spaceplane programme.

As it undocked, Atlantis commander Chris Ferguson said: "Farewell ISS, make us proud."
