The STS-132 crew of Commander Ken Ham, Pilot Tony Antonelli and Mission Specialists Garrett Reisman, Steve Bowen, Mike Good and Piers Sellers are on their way back home. Their spacecraft, shuttle Atlantis, "separated" from the International Space Station following a busy, week-long visit. Atlantis delivered the station's newest module, the Russian Mini Research Module-1, Rassvet, and cargo and supplies to the ISS. The mission's three spacewalks replaced batteries and installed an antenna outside the station. Atlantis is scheduled to return to Earth on Wednesday, May 26.
