“Cygnus NG-10” cargo spacecraft launched to Space Station.

On November 17, 2018 at 09:01 UTC the "Cygnus” privately owned U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft was launched from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS), a commercial space launch facility located at the southern tip of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia, USA. The spacecraft was orbited by the “Antares” rocket-carrier. The "Cygnus” (CRS NG-10 “S.S. John Young”) unmanned supply spacecraft, built by U.S. space firm Orbital Sciences Corp., was orbited on its cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. The "Cygnus” (CRS NG-10 “S.S. John Young”) is the 10th successful flight of the Orbital ATK uncrewed resupply spacecraft Cygnus.

Japanese HTV-7 reentry capsule splashed down.

On November 11, 2018, the Japanese HTV "Kounotori-7” unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. After undocking from the ISS, HTV-7 remained in orbit for several days before conducting a series of de-orbit burns for a destructive re-entry over the Pacific Ocean. During preparations for its destructive reentry and after the deorbit burn but before entry interface (the point at which the discernable atmosphere begins to affect a spacecraft), ground controllers remotely commanded HTV-7 to release the HSRC (HTV Small Re-entry Capsule) capsule at an altitude of 300 km. Because HSRC needs to splashdown in an area where recovery will be easy to accomplish, HTV-7 had the distinction of being the first JAXA Station resupply spacecraft to perform a destructive reentry over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean instead of over the Southern Pacific Ocean spacecraft graveyard that has been used on all six previous ...

Japanese HTV-7 cargo spacecraft departed the Space Station.

On November 7, 2018, the Japanese "HTV Kounotori-7” unmanned supply spacecraft departed the International Space Station. First HTV-6 was disengaged with the space station's robotic arm from a docking port on the Harmony module. At 16:50 UTC the spacecraft was released by German astronaut Alexander Gerst and American astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor. The HTV’s mission is not over after its departure from the space station. HTV-7 will remain in orbit for several days before conducting a series of de-orbit burns for a destructive re-entry over the Pacific Ocean on November 10.
