Astronauts Perform One More Space Walk Before Returning Home

Shuttle astronauts have one last spacewalk this afternoon before heading back to Earth from the international space station. They're wrapping up work on the $390 million for the international space station that was delivered and installed earlier this week.

Astronaut Peggy Whitson and her two Russian crewmates will will depart aboard shuttle Endeavour on Monday after a six-month stay in space. Whitson says her stay "really was a blast" -- but says she's ready to come back to enjoy her garden and dig in to a real steak.

Friday, the departing crew turned over the reigns to a new team that will remain on board the space station until at least March. They're the sixth team to occupy the orbiting outpost.
