The ATV-5 will dock to the station’s Zvezda service module on Aug. 12 at 9:43 a.m. with more than 6,000 kilograms of supplies, including food and fuel, as well as scientific hardware.

The spacecraft, called the Lemaitre after a Belgian scientist who formulated the Big Bang theory, will also fly around the station to test a laser infrared imaging sensor that will help with future guidance.

The ESA plans to use ATV technology for future spacecraft, possibly as early as 2017.

Next January, the ATV-5 will leave the space station with trash and burn up over the Pacific Ocean.
