Station Crew Bide Farewell to European Cargo Ship



The European Space Agency's "Edoardo Amaldi" Automated Transfer Vehicle-3 cargo ship undocked from the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module at the International Space Station on Sept. 28 and backed away to a safe distance from the complex for its deorbit and plunge back into the Earth's atmosphere. Having arrived at the complex in late March to deliver several tons of supplies and experiments for the station residents and now loaded with trash, the resupply craft will be commanded to deorbit Oct. 2 for a destructive reentry over the Pacific Ocean.
