Orbital Sciences Corporation’s Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo craft launched from Wallops Flight Facility on the Orbital-2 mission — the company’s second operational resupply mission to the International Space Station, under its Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.
The Cygnus spacecraft, which is delivering over 36-hundred pounds of cargo — including a host of experiments, is targeted to rendezvous with the ISS on July 16.
