Orbital Sciences Corp. and NASA held a pre launch status briefing to discuss the next mission to resupply the International Space Station on Monday, Oct. 27.
Orbital's Cygnus cargo spacecraft will launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport's Pad 0A at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and will transport almost 5,000 pounds of supplies, including science experiments, crew provisions, spare parts and experiment hardware. Expedition 41 crew members Reid Wiseman and Barry Wilmore of NASA will be ready in the station’s cupola to capture the resupply craft with the station's robotic arm and install it on the Earth-facing port of the station's Harmony module. This mission is the third of eight Orbital flights NASA contracted with the company to resupply the space station, and the fourth trip by a Cygnus spacecraft to the orbiting laboratory.
