A briefing was held on March 22 at the Kennedy Space Center to discuss the status of Orbital ATK’s enhanced Cygnus supply spacecraft, following its launch to the International Space Station. The Cygnus is delivering almost 7,500 pounds of science and research, crew supplies and vehicle hardware to the orbital laboratory. This is Orbital ATK’s fifth contracted mission to the station under the agency’s Commercial Resupply Services contract and the second flight to the station of an enhanced Cygnus spacecraft; with its increased capacity. Dubbed the S.S. Rick Husband, the spacecraft is a tribute to U.S. Air Force Col. Rick Husband, commander of space shuttle Columbia’s STS-107 mission, which was lost during reentry on Feb. 1, 2003.
