What do radishes, a space toilet, and contained fire experiments have in common? They are launching next week on a Northrop Grumman resupply mission to the International Space Station.
Loaded with nearly 8,000 pounds of research, commercial products, crew supplies, and hardware, the Cygnus cargo spacecraft is targeted to launch on the company’s Antares rocket at 10:27 p.m. EDT, Tuesday, Sept. 29 from our Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The Cygnus spacecraft, dubbed the SS Kalpana Chawla, will arrive at the space station Saturday, Oct. 3.
