“Cygnus NG-20” cargo spacecraft launched to Space Station.
13:19

On January 30, 2024 at 17:07 UTC the "Cygnus” privately owned U.S. unmanned supply spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station (LC40), Florida, USA. The space vehicle was orbited by the “Falcon-9FT” rocket-carrier. The "Cygnus” NG-20 (the S. S. Patricia “Patty” Hilliard Robertson) unmanned supply spacecraft, built by Northrop Grumman under the Commercial Resupply Services II (CRS-2) contract with NASA, was orbited on its cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. CRS means Commercial Resupply Services. It was the first time a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched a Cygnus spacecraft for Northrop Grumman. The winding down of the use of Russian-made engines forced the retirement of the “Antares-230” rocket. This was also the first time since 2017 that a “Cygnus” spacecraft launched from the Cape Canaveral. The CRS Flight 7 was the last of three such missions that called upon the launch services of United Launch Alliance’s Atlas-5 rocket.
