STS132 @T+3

The STS132 mission of the space shuttle Atlantis to the International Space Station entailed the first of its three spacewalks today. The extravehicular activity (EVA) was carried out by Astronauts Reisman and Bowen, who began at 12:54 BST. They installed the tool platform, the space-to-ground antenna and its boom in the 7hr, 25min EVA, ending at 20:19 BST. Events were, as ever, captured on NASA TV and archived to its youtube channel, from where they are put below. ISS twitterer @Astro_Soichi also captured the event in a picture:
