Washington: The U.S. shuttle Endeavour has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) ending its 12-day mission, which saw a record breaking five space walks, a NASA spokesperson said.

Endeavour, which delivered the first part of the Kibo Japanese laboratory and the Dextre Canadian-made robot, is due to land at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida Wednesday.

The second and main part of the Japanese laboratory is due to be delivered by space shuttle Discovery in late May.

The Endeavour crew comprises Commander Dominic Gorie, Pilot Gregory H. Johnson and mission specialists Rick Linnehan, Robert L. Behnken, Mike Foreman, Garrett Reisman and Japanese astronaut Takao Doi.
