Spacecraft installed! Orbital ATK’s Cygnus cargo ship was attached to the International Space Station at 10:53 a.m. EDT by astronauts using the station’s robotic arm. The crew will begin unloading approximately 5,000 pounds of science investigations, food and supplies when the hatch between the newly arrived spacecraft and the space station is opened. The spacecraft is scheduled to spend a little more than a month attached to the station.
