ATV-4 "Albert Einstein"

Brainbikerider built the ATV-4 "Albert Einstein". I'll just be lazy and copy his whole description:
The ATV (Automated Transfer Vehicle) is ESA’s unmannded resupply spacecraft for the ISS. The mission of this “real world X-Wing” is not only to transport cargo and propellant, but also to reboost the Space Station into a higher orbit. Currently, it’s the most powerful resupply spacecraft with a cargo capacity of more than 6.5 tonnes. The fourth ATV, named after the famous scientist Albert Einstein, will be launched today on an Ariane 5 rocket at ESA’s spaceport in Kourou. You can read more about the ATV here.
