Resupply Launch from Wallops Flight Facility this Morning

679

An Antares rocket with a Cygnus module is scheduled for lift-off from Wallops Flight Facility this morning at 9:59.  Along with the resupply mission, which includes 8200 pounds of research, crew supplies and hardware there are seven student-made CubeSats set to fly to the International Space Station as well.  CubeSats are small research satellites and these were developed by students from 8 universities across the country and will be going to the ISS where they’ll be deployed early next year.  NASA expects the Cygnus to arrive at the ISS just after 4am Monday.

You can watch the launch on NASA TV or on NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility FB page
