HOUSTON, Nov 5 (Reuters) Space shuttle Discovery undocked from the International Space Station today to end an 11-day stay at the orbital outpost.

Discovery unhitched from the station 218 miles (348 km) above the Pacific Ocean, then pilot George Zamka gently pulsed the shuttle's steering rockets as the ship began its two-day journey back to Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
