Nasa's space shuttle Endeavour prepares to return to Earth


The crew of Nasa's space shuttle Endeavour have said their goodbyes to the International Space Station.

The astronauts have successfully completed their mission to fit a new observation deck, or "cupola". The central window is nearly 80cm diameter - the largest ever sent into space.

They are expected to land back in Florida on Sunday.
