Cygnus Mission Update
Via Orbital Sciences Corporation
The final cargo bound for the International Space Station was loaded into our Cygnus spacecraft, and technicians closed the hatch and performed final close-outs to the Pressurized Cargo Module (PCM).
Cygnus was encapsulated in the 9.9 meter (32.48 ft.) long Antares fairing on Sept 9, 2013 at the Horizontal Integration Facility (HIF) at Wallops Island Flight Facility. Technicians will perform final close outs in advance of roll out to Pad 0A currently scheduled to occur early Friday morning.
