Nasa released this image of a cargo spacecraft arriving at the International Space Station (ISS).

Delivering more than four tons of food and supplies to the six international astronauts on the ISS, the unmanned Kounotori2 HH-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV2) docked last Thursday.

'Nasa astronaut Catherine Coleman and European Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli, both Expedition 26 flight engineers, used the station’s robotic Canadarm2 to attach the HTV2 to the Earth-facing port of the Harmony node.'

Such a great picture, Its easy to forget about the ISS above us constantly orbiting Earth. Can only imagine what it would be like to be on it. The curvature of the Earth looks amazing.
