Caption: Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) re-entry, artwork. This is an unmanned resupply vehicle used by the European Space Agency to supply the International Space Station (ISS). After being released in orbit an ATV uses its thrusters to dock with the ISS. It is also used to boost the ISS to reverse orbit degradation. After being loaded with waste, it separates and de-orbits, burning up in Earth's atmosphere. This is the Jules Verne ATV, launched on 9 March 2008. It docked with the ISS on 3 April 2008, and de-orbited five months later on 29 September 2008. Jules Verne was the first ATV. The second ATV was launched in 2011.
