Cape Canaveral, Florida, May 14, 2010 - An exhaust plume forms around the base of Launch Pad 39A as space shuttle Atlantis lifts off on the STS-132 mission. The Russian-built Mini Research Module-1 known as Rassvet, or dawn, is inside the shuttle's cargo bay. It will provide additional storage space and a new docking port for Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecraft. The laboratory will be attached to the bottom port of the station's Zarya module.
