HTV-5 berthed to ISS (NASA) A Japanese cargo vehicle arrived at the International Space Station Monday carrying several tones of supplies and other cargo. The HTV-5 spacecraft, launched August 19, was grappled by the station's robotic arm at 6:28 am EDT (1028 GMT) and berthed to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module at about three and a half hours later. The spacecraft carried more than four tons of supplies for the station's crew and other cargo, including experiments and a set of small satellites that will be deployed from the station. HTV-5 will be docked to the station for five weeks before being departing for a destructive reentry in the Earth's atmosphere.
