Automated Transfer Vehicle info-graphic.

Those of you who have sat through one of my talks might recall my mentioning the ATV, quite a lot.

The five ATV’s have taken supplies and fuel to the International Space Station and they also carry away the rubbish.

The ISS wouldn’t stay in its proper orbit without a re-boost from ATV, so Europe’s contribution is very important!

If you wanted a one stop shop on what exactly the ATV does, then this is the place to look!


Some interesting video’s and photo’s up close and personal with the ATV.
