With a 16-day mission and a smooth landing safely behind them, Commander Dominic Gorie and his crew have departed the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Riding in the same silver Astrovan that drove them to Launch Pad 39A more than two weeks ago, they headed back to their crew quarters for further medical checks and a reunion with their family members.
