A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket has arrived on Cape Canaveral Air Force Stations Space Launch Complex 41 adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, ready to boost an enhanced Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft on a resupply mission to the International Space Station. Science payloads aboard the Cygnus include a new life science facility that will support studies on cell cultures, bacteria, and other microorganisms. Also aboard is a microsatellite deployer and the first NanoRacks microsatellite to be deployed from the space station.
