ISS036-E-039129 (3 Sept. 2013) --- European Space Agency astronaut Luca Parmitano, Expedition 36 flight engineer, closes the hatch in the vestibule between the International Space Station's Harmony node and the Japanese "Kounotori" H2 Transfer Vehicle-4 (HTV-4) in preparation to release the HTV-4 ending its one-month stay at the space station. The automated resupply craft will be grappled by the Canadarm2, removed from the Harmony node and released for a destructive reentry into Earth's atmosphere.
