Japanese HTV-6 Released from Station

iss050e036123 (Jan. 27, 2017) --- The Japanese HTV-6 cargo craft is seen attached to the Harmony module and in the grips of the Canadarm2 as the International Space Station flies into an orbital sunrise. Afterward, ground controllers remotely operated the Canadarm2 and maneuvered the HTV-6 away from the Harmony module before it was released by astronauts Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) and Commander Shane Kimbrough of NASA.
