Japanese HTV-3 spacecraft deorbited.
11:04
On September 14, 2012 at 05:26 UTC the Japanese HTV-3 unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited.
The spacecraft was expected to break apart and burn up from the heat of re-entry, and any leftover debris fell into a predetermined zone in the southern Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Chile.
The re-entry marked the end of a 55-day mission for the disposable cargo craft, which lifted off July 21 from Tanegashima Space Center in Japan. It was attached to the International Space Station for 47 days.
