A piece of space junk orbiting Earth has forced NASA to tweak upcoming plans for the Friday departure of Japan's first cargo ship to the International Space Station.
The debris, a wayward chunk of an old Russian satellite, poses no risk to the space station, but could be a threat to the H-2 Transfer Vehicle, an unmanned Japanese freighter making its maiden flight, after it departs Friday

The Demonstration Flight H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV) was successfully berthed at the International Space Station (ISS) at 10:49 a.m. on September 18 (Japan Standard Time, JST.)
The HTV started its final approach to the ISS, and was captured by the ISS robotic arm at 4:51 a.m. on September 18 (JST.) Then at 10:49 a.m. on September 18 (JST,) the HTV was berthed at the ISS after being manoeuvred by the ISS robotic arm.
The ISS onboard crew will transfer the cargo shipped in the Pressurized Carrier of the HTV to ISS. Cargo in the unpressurised carrier will be lifted out by the ISS and Kibo robotic arms to be installed onto the Kibo's Exposed Facility. More details of the cargo transfer operation will be advised as they become available.

Japan's first cargo spacecraft arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) on Friday after astronauts aboard the station grabbed and docked it using a robotic arm.
The docking came a week after the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched the unmanned HTV transportation vehicle atop an H-2B rocket.
