NEXT U.S. LAUNCH

  .

Mission: ULA / Cygnus ISS Resupply CRS-7 for NASA
– Launch Vehicle: Atlas V 401 Rocket
– Launch Site:  SLC-41, Cape Canaveral AFS, FL

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V 401 will launch Orbital ATK’s Cygnus™ spacecraft on the initial leg of its cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station.

The mission is scheduled to fly on Tuesday, April 18. The 30-minute launch window opens at 11:11 a.m. EDT

From ULA:

“Orbital ATK developed the Cygnus advanced maneuvering spacecraft to perform ISS cargo delivery missions under the Commercial Resupply Service (CRS) contract with NASA. At a total weight of approximately 7,225 kg (15,928 lb), OA-7 will include approximately 3,380 kg (7,452 lb) of internal cargo and an 83 kg (183 lb) external deployer carrying CubeSats.

This mission marks the third time ULA’s Atlas V has launched Orbital ATK’s Cygnus™ spacecraft on its way to the ISS. OA-7 will be the 71st launch of the Atlas V rocket since its first launch in 2002. The Atlas V 401 configuration rocket has flown 35 times, supporting a diverse set of missions, including national security, science and exploration, commercial as well as International Space Station resupply.”
