The view from the International Space Station as Europe’s first Automated Transfer Vehicle, Jules Verne, retreats away from the orbital outpost following undocking.

At the end of a flawless six-month mission, Jules Verne ATV undocked from the International Space Station on 5 September 2008 at 23:29 hours CEST (21:29 UT).

The ATV has now embarked on the last leg of its journey in space, which will end with a controlled destructive re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere on 29 September.

This video was recorded from inside the ATV Control Centre in Toulouse, France.
