Bon Voyage, #Cygnus! 🦾 Yesterday, about three months after delivering nearly 8,000 pounds (3,628 kilograms) of scientific experiments, supplies, commercial products, hardware, and more to the ISS, NorthropGrumman’s uncrewed Cygnus cargo spacecraft departed the orbiting lab. Flight controllers on the ground sent commands to use the CanadianSpaceAgency's Canadarm2 robotic arm to robotically detach Cygnus from the Earth-facing port of the unity module and maneuver it into place. Before the craft took off, the crew packed Cygnus with the Saffire V investigation & the SharkSat hosted payload to be conducted during an extended mission in orbit. It'll complete a series of milestones to move away safely & remain in orbit until Jan. 26, for an extended mission with science experiments.

Hmm. Looks like @TheOnion’s investigative reporters might have figured it out: https://t.co/C97YrTipdF

When galaxies collide, they go through dramatic changes in appearance and stellar content. Each of these merging systems was studied as part of a recent Hubble survey to investigate the rate of new star formation within such systems. Learn more: https://t.co/uSaUgwbdk8 https://t.co/2bN0RzUr2j
