[b]Japanese Cargo Craft Docked with Station[/b]
The unpiloted Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV) arrived at the International Space Station Thursday and was attached at 5:26 p.m. CDT using the station's robotic arm.
Flight Engineers Nicole Stott, Robert Thirsk and Frank De Winne used the station's robotic arm to grab the cargo craft and attach it to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony node.
After the activation of the HTV subsystems, Thirsk and De Winne will perform vestibule outfitting procedures to prepare it for ingress and unloading.
