The Johannes Kepler ATV mission is over. Europe's Automated Transfer Vehicle undocked from the International Space Station and plunged to its destruction over the South Pacific on 21 June 2011.
The second mission of the space cargo and servicing vehicle has again proved the excellence of its automated docking and new technologies that could well be applied to other future missions.

This A & B-Roll examines the different ways that ATV developments and artificial intelligence could be used in spacecraft.
It includes interviews with Nico Dettmann, Head of the ATV Programme ESA, Sandor Veres, Professor of Autonomous Control Systems at Southampton University UK, and Wolfgang Paetsch, Head of the ATV Programme at EADS Astrium. All interviews are in English.
The B-Roll also features latest footage of the third ATV, the Eduardo Amaldi, during integration in Bremen before being shipped to French Guiana, and recalls the vivid scenes in the ATV Control Centre at the end of the Johannes Kepler mission.
