“Albert Einstein” Open for Business

The Expedition 36 crew of the International Space Station focused its attention Tuesday on a recently arrived European Space Agency space freighter, medical experiments and preparations for next week’s Russian spacewalk.

At 4:40 a.m. EDT Commander Pavel Vinogradov and Flight Engineer Luca Parmitano opened the hatch to the “Albert Einstein” Automated Transfer Vehicle-4 (ATV-4), which docked with the aft end of the Zvezda service module Saturday morning. Monday’s planned hatch opening was delayed as mission managers discussed a potential contamination issue and ultimately decided to have the crew disinfect 21 cargo bags for possible mold.

Entering ATV 4 for the first time in space

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano filmed the first time he entered the Europe’s supply and support ferry ATV Albert Einstein. The spacecraft docked with the International Space Station on 15 June 2013.

ATV Albert Einstein has brought 7 tonnes of supplies, propellants and experiments to the complex. The hatch separating them was opened and Luca now oversee the unloading and cataloguing of the cargo of over 1400 individual items.
