Cygnus Berths with the Space Station Recap

During a news briefing Sunday, Sept. 29 on NASA television and the agency's website, managers from NASA and Orbital Sciences Corporation discussed the arrival at the ISS of Orbital's Cygnus spacecraft -- America's newest space faring resupply ship.

Following its 11-day journey to the ISS, Cygnus was grappled and berthed to the orbiting laboratory by astronauts onboard ISS. The Cygnus demonstration mission sets the stage for the start of regular cargo runs to the complex beginning later this year.
