Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Aki Hoshide is pictured in the Cupola of the International Space Station during rendezvous operations with the unpiloted Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-3). Hoshide and NASA astronaut Joe Acaba (out of frame), both Expedition 32 flight engineers, used the station's Canadarm2 robotic arm to capture and berth the HTV-3 to the Earth-facing port of the station's Harmony node. The attachment was completed at 10:34 a.m. (EDT) on July 27, 2012.
