Another Resupply Mission to Space Station from Wallops

Bill Ingalls

Another resupply mission to the International Space Station shot up into the sky on Saturday from the Wallops Flight Facility.

Hundreds flocked to see the launch of the Cygnus spacecraft which lifted off at 9:59 a.m.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that it carried over 8-thousand pounds of research and supplies to the space station.

These included over 30 experiments.

Among the items on board was a Zero-G Oven that can bake cookies in space.
