#Cygnus arrives at the #ISS! A week after its original approach date, Orbital Sciences’ commercial cargo craft Cygnus has arrived at the International Space Station. The Expedition 37 crew captured Cygnus with the Canadarm2 at 7 a.m. EDT Sunday. Cygnus launched Sept. 18 aboard an Antares rocket from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

In this image from NASA TV, the Cygnus commercial resupply craft is installed by the Canadarm2 to the Harmony node on the space station.

Orbital Sciences is the second company to send a commercial cargo craft to the space station.
