Description

The ISS with the Space Shuttle Atlantis have departed a day earlier transits against the Sun. The transit above involves the ISS and with the space shuttle Atlantis (STS-132) trailing by less than 23 seconds and one arc-degree. The primary purpose of STS-132 and its twelve-day mission was to deliver and install two main modules to the ISS, namely the Integrated Cargo Carrier and a Russian-built Mini Research Module (MRM-1) which is to be attached to the Zarya module. STS-132 represents Atlantis' eleventh and final flight to the ISS and is to be retired from the active fleet immediately thereafter. The sunspot below the ISS is AR1072.
