STS-132: Wrapping up the mission

After completing the third and final spacewalk of the mission, the batteries on the truss had been replaced and the Russian mini science module installed. On Saturday the crew of the shuttle Atlantis continued moving supplies out of the orbiter and loading items that were to return to Earth for study or refurbishment.

Farewell ceremony at the hatch in ISS.

While most of us were still sleeping this morning, the crews bade each other farewell and prepared for undocking later this morning. The hatch was closed at 6:43 a.m. MDT. Undocking is scheduled for 9:22 a.m. MDT.
