Sup­ply ship heads to space sta­tion

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - World - JA­PAN

An un­manned Ja­panese space cap­sule is headed to the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion filled with cargo in­clud­ing food, ex­per­i­ments and new bat­ter­ies. It will take 4.5 days to reach the space sta­tion. The launch was de­layed for about two weeks be­cause of bad weather and a me­chan­i­cal prob­lem. The sup­ply ship is a 9-me­ter­long cylin­der that will be re­trieved by the space sta­tion’s ro­botic arm.
