Company’s unmanned rocket to make first supply run to International Space Station
A Virginia company is all set to make its first-ever supply run to the International Space Station. On the eve of its premiere rendezvous mission, Orbital Sciences Corp. said everything looked good for Wednesday’s launch from Virginia’s Eastern Shore. An unmanned Antares rocket was scheduled to blast off from NASA’s Wallops Island Facility at 10:50 a.m., carrying 1,300 pounds of food, clothes and other items as part of a test flight. A Sunday delivery is planned. A launch demo of the rocket in April went well. If this latest mission succeeds, Orbital Sciences will start launching more Cygnus cargo ships under a $1.9 billion contract with NASA. The commercial effort began more than five years ago.
