Coverage of the Cygnus Cargo Craft Arrival at the ISS

A holiday delivery docks at the International Space Station, which you can watch on NASA TV.


The International Space Station will be receiving the first of two holiday deliveries early Wednesday morning—but you don’t need to be in orbit to witness the event—just awake and online.

NASA TV will be broadcasting the capture and docking of the Cygnus cargo craft to the ISS’s Unity module at approximately 6:10 a.m. EST. The following shipment is to arrive on December 23 aboard the Russian Progress cargo spacecraft.

Here’s some video of the Cygnus spacecraft separating from the Centaur upper stage of an Atlas V rocket after liftoff from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 41 at 4:44 p.m. EST on Sunday:
