NASA To Launch Cygnus Spacecraft Tomorrow

NASA is currently scheduled to launch the Cygnus spacecraft tomorrow at 1:14 PM EDT. The mission was originally scheduled for today, but was postponed. The Antares rocket will carry the Cygnus vehicle to ISS. The unmanned spacecraft is expected to dock with the International Space Station (ISS) on Tuesday delivering food, supplies, spare parts, and science experiments. It is a routine ISS resupply mission, but it is also a test of a new laser guidance system known as TriDAR. If all goes well, this technology will be used for future unmanned space flights.
