Here are photos of Japan's latest H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-4) before and after it was successfully berthed to the International Space Station (ISS) yesterday. The HTV-4 will stay at the ISS for at least 35 days...and then conclude its mission with a fiery and destructive reentry into Earth's atmosphere.

Space station crew members Chris Cassidy and Karen Nyberg pose for a snapshot while KOUNOTORI 4 is seen floating outside of the Cupola, on August 9, 2013.
