Aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Rick Mastracchio ‏tweeted this image from @AstroRM. His post read, "We captured the Orbital Cygnus 1 two days ago. Here I am with the business end of the robotic arm." The space station crew Sunday used a robotic arm to capture and attach the Cygnus supply spacecraft, which carried dozens of new science experiments from across the country and the world to the orbiting laboratory. The arrival capped the first successful contracted cargo delivery by Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles, Va., for NASA.
