Aug. 3 - Kounotori H-II transfer vehicle blasts off for the International Space Station from Tanegashima, Japan.

A Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency H-IIB rocket carrying cargo for the International Space Station launched off Tanegashima, Japan early Sunday.

The rocket, also known as "Kounotori," is carrying a small robot that will help Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata conduct experiments in space. Wakata will join the Space Station later this year. It will take Kounotori, which means "stork" in Japanese, six days to reach the Space Station.
