Northrop Grumman has successfully launched Cygnus cargo spacecraft destined for the International Space Station. According to NASA, the spacecraft will reach the International Space Station later on November 4th.
As you might already know, resupply missions are regularly launched to the ISS. If everything goes according to the plans, then the latest cargo vessel will be docked with the ISS on Monday. Afterwards, the astronauts in the space station will unload the gears.
In case you are wondering, the international space station provides certain environments to conduct scientific experiments which wouldn’t be possible here on Earth. As a result, companies around the world pay to get their experiments completed in the ISS. Apart from that, scientists in the ISS complete other experiments to help future space missions. NASA revealed that there are hundreds of scientific investigations taking place on the ISS.
