On July 28, 2012 at 01:35 UTC the Russian "Rokot” rocket-carrier equipped with the "Briz-KM” booster was launched from Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia.

The 107-ton light Rokot launcher is a derivative of the Russian RS-18 (SS-19 Stiletto) intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). It contains two original lower stages of the ICBM and an upper stage for commercial payloads.

Japanese Unmanned Spacecraft Arrives at International Space Station.
On July 27, 2012 the Japanese HTV 3 (Kounotori 3) unmanned supply spacecraft completed a successful rendezvous with the orbiting complex.
First the HTV 3 spacecraft flew to about 12 meters away from the ISS, where it was grabbed at 12:23 UTC by the space station's 18-metert long robotic arm, which was controlled from inside by American astronaut Joseph Acaba and Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide.
Using the Canadarm2 robotic arm, Acaba and Hoshide maneuvered Kounotori 3 to the Earth-facing docking port on the space station's Harmony node at 14:34 UTC.
The spaceship is loaded with 3,600 kg of cargo, including care packages with food, clothing and other items for the space station's crew.
