Submitted by SchrodingerZ
SchrodingerZ (2576405) writes "An ATV "Space truck" has launched today from Kourou base in French Guiana to the International Space Station. "The robotic truck is heading to the International Space Station (ISS) with new supplies of food, water, air, and fuel." It launched at 04:34 GMT for a 63 minute flight into orbit. At 20 tonnes, the ATV is the biggest ship servicing the station now that the US shuttles have been retired . The Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) launched with a Ariane 5 carrier rocket, it is the "third such craft to be sent to the station by Esa (European Space Agency)" and is the third to be launched thus far. It will dock with the ISS night of the 28th and 29th, Paris time."
