A Japanese cargo ship reentered on Friday, two days after undocking from the ISS. The HTV-3 cargo ship reentered over the South Pacific at 1:27 am EDT (0527 GMT) Friday. The HTV undocked from the ISS on Wednesday, but the normal gradual departure was expedited after a computer dropout caused an abort. The HTV arrived at the station in late July, carrying several tons of cargo for the ISS.
