ISS036-E-029801 (9 Aug. 2013) --- The International Space Station's Canadarm2 grapples the unpiloted Japanese "Kounotori" H2 Transfer Vehicle-4 (HTV-4) as it approaches the station, and will attach it to the Earth-facing port of the station's Harmony node. The HTV-4 is delivering 3.6 tons of science experiments, equipment and supplies to the orbiting complex. Earth's horizon and the blackness of space provide the backdrop for the scene.
