Engineers and technicians at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida move the Orbital ATK OA-7 Cygnus spacecraft’s pressurized cargo module (PCM) to a test stand inside the high bay of the Space Station Processing Facility.
Scheduled to launch on March 19, 2017, the Orbital ATK OA-7 mission will lift off atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station will deliver thousands of pounds of supplies, equipment and scientific research materials that improve life on Earth and drive progress toward future space exploration.
