Automated Transfer Vehicle, ISS, & Shuttle
The soft “ping!” of an incoming ISM group notice distracted me momentarily from the discussion at this Thursday’s SciLands Senate meeting. Afterwards, I eventally got some time to go to Spaceport Alpha’s Low Earth Observation platform and celebrate the arrival of the real ATV – the European Space Agency (ESA)’s Automated Transfer Vehicle – named “Jules Verne,” by looking at modeller Gamel Goodfellow’s version approaching ISM’s ISS [International Space Station].
High above the world (well, 200 meters is high!), I got different views of the robot cargo ship. Another timely display from -altogether now, “ISM’s not NASA!” – the International Spaceflight Museum.
