STS132 @T+8

The crew of the space shuttle Atlantis woke at 6:20 BST on flight day nine of a nominal twelve of International Space Station construction/resupply mission STS132 to “Lord We Have Seen the Rising Sun” by Matt Redman, played for Mission Specialist Mike Good.

Today’s jobs were preparations for Sunday’s afternoon undocking. At 8:35 BST, the crew used the station’s robotic arm to place the cargo pallet into the space shuttle for return to Earth. At 12:40 BST, the crews of the shuttle and station answered questions from schoolchildren. Several events were captured by NASA TV and archived to their Youtube Channel:

Atlantis should land on Wednesday at 13:48 BST at the Kennedy Space Center. To see the station and shuttle in the sky before then, you can get times from Heavens Above. Mission updates can be found on NASA’s twitter feed.
