Twas the night before launch…
The Orbital ATK Antares rocket, with the Cygnus spacecraft onboard, sits on launch Pad-OA at our Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Liftoff is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 16 at 8:03 p.m. EDT. This cargo resupply mission will deliver over 5,100 pounds of science, research and supplies to the orbiting laboratory and its crew.
Populations all along the east coast will have the chance to catch a glimpse of the Antares rocket as it blasts Cygnus on the way to orbit. Viewing maps are available on the NASA’s website.
