Loading Cygnus

In the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, thousands of pounds of supplies, equipment and scientific research materials are prepared for loading aboard a Cygnus spacecraft’s pressurized cargo module (PCM) for the Orbital ATK CRS-7 mission to the International Space Station.
Scheduled to launch on March 19, 2017, the commercial resupply services mission will lift off atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
