Northrop Grumman rocket launches Cygnus cargo spacecraft during 2-day trip to space station

The private cargo ship Cygnus has launched several tons of research and supplies International Space Station (ISS) on Saturday (February 19).

The Northrop Grumman spacecraft was launched in time on top of the Antares rocket from NASA’s Wallops spacecraft in Virginia at 12:40 a.m. EST (5:40 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time), embarking on a 1.5-day voyage to the ISS. The wind was named the only potential serious obstacle to the launch, but a pre-launch poll showed no weather issues.
