Japanese landing capsule landed in 1.8 thousand km South-East of Tokyo
The first Japanese landing capsule designed for the transport of materials from the International space station (ISS), landed in the Pacific ocean, according to the Japanese aerospace exploration Agency (JAXA).
The capsule landed at 1.8 thousand km South-East of Tokyo in the area of the Japanese coral Islands Minami-Torishima.
Reset capsules from the space truck Konotori-7 occurred at an altitude of about 300 km above the Earth’s surface. In the capsule are protein crystals and materials experiments to the ISS.
Recall that the space truck Konotori-7 was launched on September 23. Start, which was postponed several times for technical reasons, was carried out from the Baikonur Tanegashima. On Board the ship were more than five tons of cargo.
