Cygnus Spacecraft Captured by Station’s Robotic Arm


The very first unmanned Cygnus Spacecraft to visit the International Space Station was captured by the Station’s robotic arm today, September 29th 2013 at 11:00 UTC after a slow approach full of successful testing of the crafts systems, the craft launched on an Antares rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility earlier this month.

Cygnus is full of cargo on this demonstration flight and will be unloaded, then reloaded with trash once berthed to the complex later today.
