16:23 EDTORBOrbital's Cygnus spacecraft successfully berths with International Space Station
Orbital Sciences announced that its Cygnus cargo logistics spacecraft successfully completed its rendezvous and approach maneuvers with the International Space Station, ISS, and was grappled and berthed with the station by the Expedition 38 astronaut crew earlier this morning. After Cygnus was launched into orbit by Orbitalís Antares rocket on Thursday, January 9 from NASAís Wallops Flight Facility, it completed a series of thruster firings and other maneuvers bringing the spacecraft in close proximity to the ISS. Final approach to the station began at about 3:00 a.m. EST this morning, culminating with the stationís robotic arm grappling the spacecraft at 6:08 a.m. when it was about 30 feet from the ISS. Cygnus was then guided to its berthing port on the nadir side of the ISSí Harmony module where its installation was completed at 8:05 a.m. Under a $1.9B CRS contract with NASA, Orbital will use Antares and Cygnus to deliver up to 44,000 pounds of cargo to the ISS over eight missions, including the mission currently underway, through late 2016. For these missions, NASA will manifest a variety of essential items based on ISS program needs, including food, clothing, crew supplies, spare parts and equipment, and scientific experiments.
