ISS037-E-021195 (28 Oct. 2013) --- The European Space Agency's fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV-4), also known as the "Albert Einstein," begins its relative separation from the International Space Station during the Expedition 37 mission. The ATV-4 undocked from the aft port of the Zvezda Service Module at 4:55 a.m. (EDT) Oct. 28, 2013. The ATV, filled with trash and unneeded items, is scheduled to be sent into Earth's atmosphere for a planned destructive re-entry over an uninhabited area of the south Pacific Ocean on Nov. 2.
