[b]Orbital Sciences Commercial Resupply Services Mission (Orb-2)[/b]
An Antares rocket carrying Orbital's Cygnus cargo logistics spacecraft is slated to lift off from Launch Pad-0A at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island, Virginia no earlier than July 10, 2014.
Antares will boost Cygnus to orbit, where the cargo craft will use its on-board thrusters to rendezvous and position itself for berthing with the International Space Station (ISS).
The Orb-2 mission is the second of Orbital's eight missions to the ISS under NASA's Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract, which includes delivery of up to 20,000 kg of supplies to the space station.
