Northrop Grumman launches Cygnus cargo ship to space station for NASA | Space

By coincidence, liftoff occurred at 3:21 p.m. ET.

Northrop Grumman launched a Cygnus spacecraft filled with NASA supplies (and some tasty treats) to the International Space Station Saturday (Feb. 15) in an afternoon liftoff that had some impeccable timing.

An Antares rocket (also built by Northrop Grumman) launched the uncrewed Cygnus NG-13 spacecraft at 3:21 p.m. EST (2043 GMT) — that’s “3-2-1” for a liftoff time — from Pad-0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility.

“Awesome launch today,” Joel Montalbano, NASA’s deputy program manager for the International Space Station, said just after launch during live commentary.
