The wonders of Jules Verne! (ESA's ATV Automated Transfer Vehicle)

I'm posting rapidly this fantastic video by ESA, that shows the ISS' astronauts ingress in the newly attached ATV in April.
There is Garrett Reisman who is enjoying weightlessness like a child! :-D

The article about the possibilities (also not expected) provided by this amazing 100% european spacecraft is very interesting! It's worth to be read, to learn how were spent (very well) the 10€/year that every european citizen contributes to the space funding :-)

Have a nice day,
