ISS Receives Japanese HTV-4 Cargo Vessel

Six days after launching from the Tanegashima Space Center in southern Japan, the unpiloted Japanese Kounotori4 H-II Transfer Vehicle, or HTV-4, met up with The International Space Station and was captured by the Expedition 36 crew aboard the ISS, using the station’s Canadarm2 robotic arm. The HTV-4 was launched with more than 3 1/2 tons of cargo and experiments for delivery to the ISS.
