Soyuz undocks for trip back to earth

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The Russian Soyuz spacecraft has undocked from the International Space Station (ISS) Sunday, ahead of its return to Earth. Fyodor Yurchikhin, Luca Parmitano and Karen Nyberg are onboard, as their mission heads to a conclusion in Kazakhstan at around 0249 GMT on Monday. The three crew members of ISS Expedition are in the final leg of their six month mission in space. In preparation for their trip home, the Soyuz TMA-09M crew donned their Sokol launch and entry suits, closed the hatch between the Orbital Module and Descent Module, and strapped themselves. They will then spend a few hours of free flight in the Soyuz, prior to its de-orbit burn, followed by a landing near the town of Dzhezkazgan, Kazakhstan.
