Antares Rocket Launch

Cool Capture: En Route to the ISS

The Antares rocket from the Orbital Sciences Corporation jetted up into the Earth's atmosphere on Sept. 18 with cargo bound for the International Space Station. The Expedition 37 crew will receive the ultimate care package when the rocket reaches the ISS — over 1,300 pounds of food and clothing are aboard the Cygnus cargo spacecraft.

Antares launched from Pad 0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia after a controller declared, "Go Antares, go Cygnus." It's an important send-off for Obrital Sciences, which needed to prove that the rocket is capable of successfully docking with the space station. The spacecraft will rendezvous with the ISS in a few days, and remain until late October.
