Media accreditation is open for the launch from Virginia of Northrop Grumman’s 14th commercial resupply services mission to deliver NASA science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station aboard its Cygnus spacecraft.
Northrop Grumman is targeting liftoff of its Antares launch vehicle for no earlier than 10:26 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Sept. 29, from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport’s Pad-0A at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, NASA will credential a limited number of media to cover the Antares launch from Wallops. International media who would be coming from overseas will be unable to register for accreditation for this launch. International media based in the U.S. may apply.
Both U.S. and U.S.-based International media must apply by 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14. All accreditation requests must be sent to Keith Koehler at email@example.com.
Each resupply mission to the station delivers scientific investigations in the areas of biology and biotechnology, Earth and space science, physical sciences, and technology development and demonstrations.
Highlights of space station research facilitated by this Cygnus are:
Cargo resupply from U.S. companies ensures a national capability to deliver critical science research to the space station, significantly increasing NASA's ability to conduct new investigations at the only laboratory in space.
