WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. – Orbital ATK’s Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus spacecraft loaded with supplies for the International Space Station successfully launched Sunday, November 12 from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore.

Saturday’s launch was scrubbed after an aircraft was detected in the vicinity of the launch pad.

This is only the second Antares resupply launch from Wallops Island since October 2014, when an Antares rocket exploded just six seconds after launching from Launch Pad – 0A at Wallops.

The Cygnus cargo spacecraft is carrying more than 7,000 pounds of food, clothing and experiments to the ISS.

The spacecraft reached the International Space Station early Tuesday and was captured by the ISS’s robotic arm around 5 a.m. EST.
