"KOUNOTORI" Chosen as Nickname of the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV)

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) conducted a nickname campaign for the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV), to familiarise people with the HTV.
Among many suggestions, the nickname "KOUNOTORI" meaning "white stork" was selected.
