Traveling Cygnus pulls into port at the International Space Station | Spaceflight Now
CAPE CANAVERAL — Astronauts aboard the International Space Station used the robotic arm to snare a commercial cargo ship and bring it aboard this morning while traveling at five miles per second.
The Orbital ATK Cygnus freighter, dubbed the S.S. Rick Husband, was captured at 6:51 a.m. EDT (1051 GMT) by Expedition 47 commander and arm operator Tim Kopra floating in the station’s multi-window Cupola.
“Cygnus capture is complete,” Kopra radioed to Mission Control in Houston as the spacecraft flew 252 miles above the southern Indian Ocean.
