NASA sets coverage for Northrop Grumman Cargo Space Station mission

News

NASA, Northrop Grumman, and SpaceX target Monday, Jan. 29, for the next launch to deliver science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station for the agency and its partners.

This launch is the 20th Northrop Grumman commercial resupply services mission to the orbital laboratory for the agency.

Live launch coverage will begin at 12:15 p.m. and air on NASA+, NASA Television, the NASA app, YouTube, and on the agency's website, with prelaunch events starting Friday, Jan. 26. Learn how to stream NASA TV through a variety of platforms.

Filled with more than 8,200 pounds of supplies, the Cygnus cargo spacecraft, carried on the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, will launch from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. It will arrive at the space station Wednesday, Jan. 31.

NASA coverage of rendezvous and capture will begin at 2 a.m., followed by installation coverage at 5 a.m. NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli will capture Cygnus using the station's robotic arm, and NASA astronaut Loral O'Hara will act as backup. After capture, the spacecraft will be installed on the Unity module's Earth-facing port.

Highlights of space station research facilitated by delivery aboard this Cygnus are:

• the first surgical robot on the space station

• an orbit re-entry platform that collects thermal protection systems data

• a 3D cartilage cell culture that maintains healthy cartilage in a lower gravity

• the MSTIC facility, an autonomous semiconductor manufacturing platform

• and a metal 3D printer that will test the capability for printing small metal parts
