NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, speaking from NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans on Monday, Jan. 13, congratulated teams from NASA, Orbital Sciences Corp. and the Expedition 38 crew members aboard the International Space Station on the successful Orbital-1 cargo resupply mission, which arrived at the space station Sunday. Astronauts aboard the space station used a robotic arm to capture and attach Orbital's Cygnus supply spacecraft, which carried 2,780 pounds of supplies to the orbiting laboratory, including dozens of new science experiments from across the country and around the world. The arrival capped the first successful contracted cargo delivery by Orbital Sciences for NASA. Participating in the event were NASA's Mission Control Center at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Orbital Science's Mission Control Center in Dulles, Va., and astronauts Michael Hopkins and Rick Mastracchio of NASA and Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency aboard the International Space Station.
