This may be of interest to those following the ETS-7 mission.  Although
the various ETS-7 sites don't always have up-to-date press releases,
this particular link looks like it's being updated regularly:
http://oss1.tksc.nasda.go.jp/ets-7/ets7_e/plan/this_week.html

It says that there was an attempted redocking on the 9th, but it was
aborted at 100m due to an attitude error, and that both components are
presently keeping station 5km apart while a recovery plan is being prepared.

The event times on the page are given in Japan Standard Time, which is
UTC +9.  To make the time conversions easier, you can visit these handy
sites that do worldwide time conversions...
