Weather finally clears for Cygnus launch

Orbital ATK’s Cygnus Spacecraft Successfully Launched on Cargo Delivery Mission to ISS. Cygnus launched at 0145 Pacific time Sunday, and will arrive at the ISS tomorrow. Its launch had been delayed three days due to bad weather.

Now that Cygnus is operational again, and Dragon’s launch is right around the corner, we’re back to having viable US carriers available to resupply the ISS. Yeah verily, there is much rejoicing!
