ATV 2


ATV 2 is no longer on orbit
ATV 2 is classified as:


NORAD ID: 37368
Int'l Code: 2011-007A
Launch date: February 16, 2011
Source: European Space Agency (ESA)
Launch site: FRENCH GUIANA (FRGUI)
Decay date: 2011-06-21

This is the second Automated Transfer Vehicle sent by ESA. Named for Johannes Kepler, the famous German astronomer and mathematician, the ATV-2 spacecraft carries 5,929 pounds of dry cargo in its pressurized cabin. The ship will also deliver 220 pounds of breathing oxygen and 1,875 pounds of rocket propellant for the space station's Zvezda service module. Technicians also loaded 14,474 pounds of propellant into the ATV's fuel tanks to guide the 33-foot-long to the space station, then raise the lab's orbit by nearly 25 miles this spring as the outpost prepares for life without the space shuttle. The ATV's cargo load includes gear for NASA. The European Space Agency developed the resupply freighter to help pay for the agency's share of the station's operating costs.
