The massive Rotating Service Structure is rolled away from space shuttle Atlantis on May 13, 2010 the day before its launch on mission STS-132. Atlantis is scheduled for liftoff from Launch Complex 39-A at Kennedy Space Centre at 18:20 GMT to begin a two-week mission to the International Space Station. Atlantis is delivering a Russian research module to the station, the first time a Russian ISS component has been delivered by the space shuttle.

This is Atlantis' final scheduled mission before it is retired along with the rest of NASA's shuttle fleet this year.
