Jules Verne

Jules Verne excites me!

Later today Jules Verne Automated Transfer Vehicle - ATV will be launched by Ariane from Kourou. If you live in another time zone than CET you might want to follow this exciting moment directly on TV.

Jules Verne ATV carries supplies to the International Space Station

The International Space Station (ISS) depends on regular deliveries of experiment equipment and spare parts, as well as food, air and water for its permanent crew.

From 2008 onward, the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) will be one of the indispensable ISS supply spaceships.
