LIVE: NASA TV – Coverage of the rendezvous and capture of the Northrop Grumman Cygnus NG-17 Cargo Craft at the International Space Station

Loaded with food, fuel, and supplies, the unpiloted Northrop Grumman CRS-17 Cygnus cargo craft arrived to the International Space Station February 21 where it was installed to the nadir port of the Unity module. Dubbed the “SS Piers Sellers” for the late NASA astronaut for his contributions as a climate scientist and his assistance in assembling the International Space Station, Cygnus launched from the Wallops Flight Facility on February 19 atop an Antares rocket and will remain docked to the space station for approximately two months.
