ATV-5 is the last in the series to deliver supplies to the International Space Station.
The fifth Automated Transfer Vehicle will be launched from Europe's Spaceport in French Guyane.
It has been named Georges Lemaitre as a tribute to the Belgian physicist, father of the Big Bang theory.
After launch on an Ariane 5 from Kourou, ATV will automatically navigate to a precision docking with the Station’s Russian Zvezda module.
It will remain attached to the ISS for up to six months before reentering the atmosphere and deliberately burning up together with several tonnes of Station waste.
The story includes interviews with Massimo Cislaghi, ATV-5 Mission Manager in English, French and Italian and with Nico Dettman, Head of the ATV-program, in English and German.
