The Johannes Kepler ATV mission is over. Europe's Automated Transfer Vehicle undocked from the International Space Station and plunged to its destruction over the South Pacific on 21 June 2011.
The second mission of the space cargo and servicing vehicle has again proved the excellence of its automated docking and new technologies that could well be applied to other future missions.
