The undocking of the European Space Agency’s ATV-3 cargo spacecraft from the International Space Station (ISS) has been delayed by at least another day, mission control said on Thursday.

The undocking of the European Space Agency’s ATV-3 cargo spacecraft from the International Space Station (ISS) has been delayed by at least another day, mission control said on Thursday.

 

The second attempt to undock had been slated for the night of September 27-28.

 

The ATV Edoardo Amaldi remains docked to the Zvezda service module on the Russian segment of the orbital station, after an initial attempt to undock on Tuesday was called off due to a command error in the communications link between the ISS and the space freighter.

 

ATV-3 docked with the ISS on March 28, five days after it lifted off from the European launch center in Kourou, French Guiana. The freighter delivered seven tons of supplies, including scientific equipment.
