A Tribute to Einstein

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 37 Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency paid tribute to the European "Albert Einstein" Automated Transfer Vehicle-4 cargo ship during an in-flight event Oct. 24 involving officials and students in Italy, Germany and Israel. The ATV-4 resupply vehicle arrived at the station in mid-June, delivering more than 7 tons of food, fuel and supplies for the space station crew. It will undock on Oct. 28 and will be deorbited for a destructive entry back into the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean.
