ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst is responsible for unloading all the cargo from ESA’s Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Georges Lemaître to the International Space Station. This includes the 100 kg of oxygen stored in ATV’s tanks. Here Alexander recorded the process of opening the valves and checking the pressure.
Georges Lemaître bought 6602 kg of freight, including 2680 kg of dry cargo and 3922 kg of water, propellants and gases to the Station.
