The Cygnus spacecraft will arrive at the International Space Station on Saturday, March 26, at which time Expedition 47 Commander Tim Kopra of NASA and Flight Engineer Tim Peake of ESA (European Space Agency) will grapple Cygnus, using the space station’s robotic arm, at approximately 6:40 a.m. ET.
NASA Television coverage of the rendezvous and grapple will begin at 5:30 a.m. ET.
After the Cygnus capture, ground commands will be sent from mission control, in Houston, to the station’s arm to rotate and install the spacecraft on the bottom of the station’s Unity module.
NASA Television coverage of the installation will begin at 9:15 a.m. ET.
The rendezvous and installation can be seen on NASA Television and www.nasa.gov/ntv.
