ATV-3 spacecraft is deorbited into Pacific.
19:57
On October 03, 2012 the European ATV-3 unmanned supply spacecraft was successfully de-orbited and sunk in the Pacific. The Automated Transfer Vehicle, nicknamed Edoardo Amaldi after a pioneering Italian physicist, plunged into the atmosphere after two rocket burns slowed the craft's velocity enough to fall from orbit.
Debris from the ATV-3 fell into a predefined zone in the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Chile at about 01:30 UTC.
