A snagged cable stopped Atlantis astronauts today from inspecting the orbiter with laser sensors and a TV camera; instead, the STS-132 crew used a boom-mounted digital camera as a backup. Also, mission managers are concerned about a piece of space debris of unknown origin whose elliptical orbit could bring it near the International Space Station after shuttle Atlantis docks there tomorrow. Commander Ken Ham, Pilot Tony Antonelli and Mission Specialists Garrett Reisman, Steve Bowen, Mike Good and Piers Sellers will deliver a Russian research module and additional cargo.
