ISS Captures Japanese HTV-4 Cargo Vessel

After being captured with the International Space Station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm, controlled by the Expedition 36 crew aboard the ISS, the unpiloted Japanese Kounotori4 H-II Transfer Vehicle, or HTV-4, was installed on the Earth-facing port of the station’s Harmony module. It will remain there for about a month while the more than 3 ∏ tons of cargo and experiments it delivered are transferred to the orbital laboratory.
