Cygnus, International Space Station have successful hook up

JOHNSON SPACE CENTER — After a week’s delay, the newest cargo supply ship successfully hooked up with NASA’s International Space Station on Sunday.

Orbital Sciences’ Cygnus spacecraft was gently grabbed by the space station’s robotic arm that was under the control of Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano then linked up, making the company only the second commercial cargo delivery service doing business with NASA. California-based SpaceX, with its Dragon spacecraft, completed a similar delivery last year.
