“Albert Einstein” Delivers Gear to Expedition 36 Crew

Europe’s Automated Transfer Vehicle-4 (ATV-4) automatically docked Saturday at 10:07 a.m. EDT to the aft-end port of the Zvezda service module. The ATV-4, nicknamed the “Albert Einstein,” launched June 5 atop an Ariane 5 rocket delivering cargo, experiment hardware and supplies. Also aboard the ATV-4 are propellant, water and oxygen and air.

The ATV-4, which launched from a European Space Agency (ESA) launch pad in Kourou, French Guiana, is ESA’s heaviest spacecraft ever. The 13-ton spacecraft delivered 5,465 pounds of dry cargo, experiment hardware and supplies. It is also carrying 1,896 pounds of propellant for transfer to the Zvezda service module, 5,688 pounds of propellant for reboost and debris avoidance maneuver capability, 1,257 pounds of water and 220 pounds of oxygen and air.
