Endeavour: "Oh no, these paparazzi again!"

More like "Cool, take more!" Endeavour's the pretty girl of the fleet.

And the curtain comes down on what has to be one of the most amazing events ever. Felt like the first RPM we got to watch.

Really well done. Kept on the Soyuz cam for long periods, as we wanted. Rob Navias commentating.

Wonderfully done!

I agree! I remember the first RPM, was amazing. This was amazing too.

Physical Sep! History made with the first Soyuz undocking with a Shuttle on Station, ever!

Well, first with *this* station, anyway... Soyuz undocked with a Shuttle on Mir, in 1995.

And I can say I was on console for both...

Indeed, and as noted in the article. I clearly got a bit excited ;D

And now I've gotten a bit more excited knowing you've worked both of them!

Form an orderly line for Jorge autographs!

STS-71, without a doubt... you never forget the first. Plus the shuttle undocking/flyaround so you had the three-body problem. Plus the Mir attitude control failure that forced a Soyuz redock while the shuttle was still flying around.
