HTV-5 suffers glitch prior to ISS undocking

HTV-5 departs ISS – following slight glitch – ahead of fiery demise. The SSRMS (Space Station Remote Manipulator System — You know, the giant crane claw thing) noted a safing event, which turned out to be a computer glitch. The ISS made an additional orbit while the crew checked things out, and the the HTV-5 was successfully released.

It carries two instruments that will survive re-entry that will record data about the descent to improve modeling of re-entry burn ups in the future.
