Space truck Cygnus Orbital ATK arrived at the International space station (ISS) on Tuesday, NASA is broadcast dock an unmanned spacecraft with a space station.

Cargo unit was launched on Sunday from the Baikonur Wallops in Virginia. Unmanned spacecraft launched into orbit launch vehicle Antares.

The seizure of the truck’s mechanical arm of the station was carried out by the astronauts, NASA and ESA Randy Breznik, and Paolo Nespoli.

Cygnus brought to the ISS more than 3 tons of cargo, including materials for scientific experiments in orbit. The device will remain docked to the American module unity until 4 December. Upon completion of the mission, the ship will take with orbit waste materials and before you burn in the upper atmosphere of the Earth, launched several cube-Sats.

For this eighth Cygnus cargo mission to the ISS under contract with NASA.

The moon’s surface is warming rapidly, that suggests that she covered with a large layer of sand or dust.On the ISS, arrived to the American cargo spacecraft Cygnus© NASA / JPL-Caltech/ASUЗонд Mars Odyssey received the first infrared photographs of Phobos, one of the two moons of Mars, which will help scientists understand when it will eventually fall apart and turn into a giant ring of dust.
