Cygnus Reaches International Space Station

Posted: Updated:

 CAPE CANAVERAL, Fl. - After a week's delay, the Cygnus cargo ship has made it to the International Space Station.

Cygnus was launched from NASA's Wallops Island Flight Facility on September 18th, but inaccurate navigation data caused a delay.

A software patch fixed that problem and the mission proceeded as planned.

Sunday morning, astronauts at the Space Station used a robotic arm to corral the ship, which contains over half a ton of food, clothes, and other supplies.
