especially when you remember that this thing weighs 19 tonnes. You wouldn't want that little lot hitting you hard. They're going to take it within 12 metres of the ISS platform tomorrow - I imagine there will be a degree or two of tension, both in the Space Station and in the ground control centre.
How they managed to just sit and let it do its job I will never know.
But they did, and it was perfect apparently. We seem to advance ourselves on this kind of stuff, but, unfortunately go backwards on other things like self discipline and respect for others - or is that just we British.
The most telling thing about the Space Truck is that ESA can build a Space Station with a this technology without anyone onboard just by linking a few together and not just in orbit here but maybe Mars in the the future.That would be amazing.
