On August 17, 2014 at13:15 UTC the "Cygnus” (CRS-2) unmanned supply spacecraft was deorbited. The spacecraft re-entered the atmosphere and burned up over the South Pacific Ocean.
Packed with trash and other equipment tagged for disposal, an Orbital Sciences Corp. “Cygnus” spacecraft plunged back into the atmosphere over the uninhabited Pacific Ocean, concluding a one-month mission to resupply the International Space Station. The re-entry occurred east of New Zealand two days after the Cygnus spacecraft was released from the space station's robotic arm. It was the third flight of "Cygnus” to the ISS.
