This Week at NASA: Cygnus Arrives at the Space Station and More.

On Oct. 23, Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo spacecraft safely arrived at the International Space Station - six days after being launched on an Antares rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, in Virginia.

The successful trip to orbit is the return of rocket launches to the space station from Virginia, following the loss of an Antares and a Cygnus spacecraft during a launch mishap in October 2014. The Cygnus delivered more than 5,100 pounds of science investigations, food and supplies to the crew onboard the station.
