Very spostiamo device has the shape of a cone with a truncated Top, its dimensions are 84 by 66 cm and a weight of 180 kg. Inside the capsule are protein crystals created on the ISS, and other materials experiments. The design of the capsule allows it to withstand overload during entry into the atmosphere and temperatures up to 2000 degrees Celsius, while maintaining a constant temperature within 4 degrees.

Previously, “Konotori-7” delivered to the ISS about six tons of various cargoes. From the station the ship undocked on 8 November, taking with them debris and capsule materials testing.
