Cygnus Starts Final Round of Processing for Station Cargo Delivery
The next U.S. cargo delivery to the International Space Station is steadily progressing toward launch.
An Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft is at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida undergoing a final round of prelaunch preparations for its December liftoff aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. This will be Orbital ATK’s fourth commercial resupply flight to the station and will carry more than 7,000 pounds of supplies, equipment and research to keep the station stocked and capable of serving as a platform for studies off the Earth, for the Earth.
