The European Space Agency’s “Albert Einstein” Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) arrived at the International Space Station June 15, automatically docking to the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module to complete a ten-day journey following its launch June 5 on an Ariane 5 rocket from Kourou, French Guiana. “Albert Einstein” is the fourth of five ATVs developed by ESA to help resupply the orbital outpost, delivering more than 7 tons of fuel and supplies for the Expedition 36 crew. “Albert Einstein” will remain attached to the aft port of Zvezda until late October, available to help reboost the station or conduct debris avoidance maneuvers, if required.

The Russian ISS Progress 51 cargo ship undocked from the International Space Station’s Zvezda Service Module June 11, clearing the way for the scheduled arrival of the European Space Agency’s “Albert Einstein” Automated Transfer Vehicle to link up to the same port June 15. The Progress 51 craft was launched on April 24 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, and docked to Zvezda on April 26. The Progress will remain in orbit for several days well away from the station to enable Russian ground controllers to conduct engineering tests with the vehicle before it is deorbited to burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere.
