Japanese cargo craft burns after resupply

A Japanese cargo craft fell back to Earth Sunday Feb. 5 after delivering supplies to the International Space Station  and attempting a novel space-junk experiment. 

The spacecraft, named HTV-6, arrived at the space station in December filled with 5 tons of food, water, clothes, science experiments and other gear. It intentionally burned up in Earth's atmosphere at 10:06 a.m. EST on Sunday (12:06 a.m. Japan StandardTime), according to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency.
