Washington: Space shuttle Atlantis has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) and is scheduled to make its final landing at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Thursday, ending NASA’ space shuttle program spanning three decades.

Thursday``s Kennedy landing opportunities are at 5:56 a.m. and 7:32
Atlantis’ entry flight control team, led by Flight Director Tony Ceccacci, will evaluate weather conditions at the landing site before giving approval to Atlantis to return.
