Video recorded by cameras mounted atop each of the twin solid rocket boosters that helped propel space shuttle Atlantis into Earth orbit on May 14 provide two new and unique views of the launch. The reusable SRBs were recovered shortly after launch May 14th from the Atlantic Ocean approximately 140 miles downrange from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center where the STS-132 mission to the International Space Station began. Commander Ken Ham, Pilot Tony Antonelli and Mission Specialists Garrett Reisman, Steve Bowen, Mike Good and Piers Sellers are scheduled to leave the orbiting complex on Sunday when Atlantis undocks and begins its flight home.
