Washington: A NASA commercial cargo provider Northrop Grumman Antares carrier rocket, with Cygnus cargo spacecraft on board, lifted off from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia toward the International Space Station (ISS), NASA said in a statement.

It said this is Northrop Grumman’s 19th contracted resupply mission to the ISS.

“This Cygnus, dubbed the S.S. Laurel Clark, is scheduled to arrive at the space station on Friday, Aug. 4,” NASA said.

Over 8,200 pounds of science and research, crew supplies and vehicle hardware will be delivered to the space station.
