After practically four months attached to the International Space Station, Europe's Automated Transfer Vehicle will plunge into the atmosphere over the South Pacific on 20 June.
The Johannes Kepler mission was the second flight of this space freighter resupplying and servicing the orbital complex. For ESA and its international partners all the mission objectives - and more - were fully achieved and thoughts have now immediately turned to the next ATV flight early next year.
This A & B-Roll describes the key moments of the mission, including two occasions when the Johannes Kepler serviced the orbital complex in ways that were totally unplanned.
It includes interviews with ESA's ATV-2 Programme Manager Nico Dettmann (in English & German), Kris Capelle ATV-2 Lead Mission Director, ESA (In English), Martial Vanhove, Head of the ATV Control Centre in Toulouse, CNES (in French) and Isabelle Escané, ATV-2 Flight Director, CNES.
