STS-132: undocking from ISS (NASA) The space shuttle Atlantis undocked from the International Space Station on Sunday, perhaps for the final time. Atlantis undocked from the station at 11:22 am EDT (1522 GMT) Sunday, just over one week after docking with the station. During its time on the station the STS-132 crew installed a new Russian lab module and also performed three spacewalks to replace batteries, install a backup communications antenna, and other tasks. Atlantis is scheduled to land Wednesday morning at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. STS-132 is the last mission currently scheduled for Atlantis, although there is a possibility the orbiter will fly one additional mission to the station next year.
