A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket will launch the next cargo resupply spacecraft to the International Space Station from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
The mission designated OA-7 will be the 7th cargo flight for Orbital ATK. The Cygnus spacecraft will carry almost 7,500Lbs of cargo up to the space station.
The Atlas V will fly in the 401 configuration. This is the smallest of the ULA rockets having a single core booster, no solid rocket motors, a single Centaur upper stage and a 4 Meter payload fairing.
