Samples of the proteinaceous crystals received during the experiments on the International Space Station (ISS) were delivered to Earth on Sunday by the capsule from the Japanese pilotless Konotori-7 freighter, has reported JAXA aerospace agency of Japan.

Is the first similar mission for transportation of materials with the ISS held by Japanese.

the Capsule of 84 by 66 centimeters in size is lowered on the surface of the Pacific Ocean near Japan on a parachute. Samples of proteinaceous crystals will be sent to scientific center of JAXA Tsukuba in the prefecture of Ibaraki.

the Pilotless Konotori-7 truck (HTV7) with a loading capacity of 6,2 tons has been started on September 23 from the spaceport of Tanegashima in the prefecture Kagoshima. Then he also delivered to the ISS, in particular, the capsule for trial sending to the earth of samples of experiments which are made onboard the station.

After the capsule has undocked from the ship, he has burned down in dense beds of the atmosphere with garbage which has been also sent with the ISS.
