After the joy of seeing the ATV Johannes Kepler successfully rendezvous with the International Space Station on 24 February, the ISS astronauts have been unloading Europe's space freighter. One of the first things they searched for was food and particularly the pizzas! Now docked to the ISS for several months, the ATV has already reboosted the orbital complex once and will do so again several times before leaving.
This A & B-Roll recalls the key moments of the docking and has exclusive video of the astronauts' discovering the inside of the ATV. It features interviews with Nico Dettman, ESA Head of ATV Programme Production at ESA, the European Space Agency's Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain and other key players of the Johannes Kepler mission. Interviews are in English, German, French and Swedish.
