So. Freakin’. Awesome. [Fangirl Flail]

io9 reports that the Jules Verne Automated Transfer Vehicle is entering its final testing tomorrow.

As in, when it docks itself to the International Space Station all by itself.

Reasons why this is Fangirl Flailworthy:

1) Space. Dude, if I have to explain it, you just won’t get it.
2) It’s called an ATV. All ATVs are AWESOME by definition.
3) Since it’s named after the grandfather of Science Fiction*, per io9:

The Jules Verne carried two rare manuscripts by the groundbreaking writer, which will be kept on the ISS.

*The grandmother of SciFi is, of course, Mary Shelly.
