JAXA successfully launched the HTV-5 resupply spacecraft at 7:50 a.m. EDT (20:50 JST) from Tanegashima Island in Japan. Kounotori means “white stork” – a fitting name for a craft that will deliver 6.6 tons of equipment and supplies to the astronauts aboard the ISS in the coming days.
Japan is poised to launch their fifth Kounotori vehicle to the International Space Station. The flight is currently set to take place on Aug. 19, 2015, and it will deliver supplies to the International Space Station (ISS). The launch time is scheduled for 7:50 a.m. EDT (20:50 Japan Standard Time, JST).
