KSC-2015-3460

A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket with a single-engine Centaur upper stage rolls into position next to the exhaust duct on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Space Launch Complex 41, 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. Photo credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett
