ESA Euronews: The Space Truck

Nice update today featuring our very own ATV!

The European cargo spacecraft ATV is the most complex vehicle ever built to re-supply an International Space Station. It can take nearly eight tonnes of cargo and uses artificial intelligence to accomplish some of its more complicated manoeuvres. The 'Space Truck' and its possible developments are the theme of this episode of Euronews Space.
