Cygnus CRS-5 spacecraft was undocked from space station.
18:56

On November 21, 2016, the US "Cygnus” (CRS OA--5 “Alan Poindexter”) unmanned supply spacecraft was undocked from the International Space Station. The spacecraft, which had been attached to the space station since October 23, 2016, was released by astronauts aboard the station using the orbiting complex's huge robotic arm at 13:22 UTC. Astronauts Robert Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet managed the departure procedures from a robotics work station inside the cupola module. It was the 6th successful flight of "Cygnus” to the ISS. But Cygnus CRS-5 spacecraft’s mission is not over.
