This was the formal authorisation for which the team here was waiting and it means that ATV has met all safety and other requirements for rendezvous and docking.

"We have proven that Jules Verne's systems are safe, reliable and ready to dock to the Station. Everyone has worked very hard to get to this point, and we have also proven that the team on the ground is fully ready for tomorrow's first attempt," said John Ellwood, ESA's ATV Project Manager.
