Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Wednesday, February 23, 2011

In the grasp of the International Space Station's Canadarm2, the Japanese Kounotori2 H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV2) is relocated from the Harmony node nadir port to Harmony's zenith port. NASA astronaut Catherine (Cady) Coleman and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli, both Expedition 26 flight engineers, moved the HTV2, operating the station's robotic arm from the controls inside the Cupola. A cloud-covered part of Earth and the blackness of space provide the backdrop for the scene. ISS026-E-028081 (18 Feb. 2011) --- high res (1.1 M) low res (77 K)
