Japanese Cargo Ship Heads for the International Space Station

A Japanese H-IIB (H-2-B) rocket launched from the Tanegashima (pron: Tan-uh-GOSH'-ih-mah) Space Center in southern Japan on Jan. xx, 2011, to place the "Kounotori" (pron: Kah-no-TORR'-ee) HTV2 cargo ship into orbit for a rendezvous with the International Space Station. The HTV2 is loaded with almost 5 tons of supplies and spare parts for the station. Upon its arrival, it will be grappled by the station's robotic arm and attached to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony module, from where its cargo will be transferred to the orbital complex.
