Kounotori-3: mission viewing, questions, comments
This thread is intended for members' comments and questions about Japan's Kounotori-3 mission and the updates posted under the topic: JAXA's H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-3) Kounotori-3.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched Friday (July 20) its third H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-3) "Kounotori-3" to the International Space Station. The unmanned spacecraft lifted off atop a Japanese H-IIB rocket at 10:06 p.m. EDT (0206 GMT July 21) from the Yoshinobu Launch Complex at the Tanegashima Space Center in Japan.

Here's a JAXA film about the Kounotori-3 and it's assorted payloads. It's about 15 minutes long. The somewhat flowery and propagandistic parts of it remind me strongly of NASA films from the 1960's (and later).
