Cape Canaveral, Florida, May 14, 2010 - A plume of smoke builds at Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39A as space shuttle Atlantis' twin solid rocket boosters ignite to propel the spacecraft into orbit. Atlantis' primary payload for the STS-132 mission is the Russian-built Mini Research Module-1, which will provide additional storage space and a new docking port for Russian Soyuz and Progress spacecraft aboard the International Space Station.
