On Monday, November 19, Flight Engineer Serena Auñón-Chancellor operated the International Space Station’s Canadarm2 to capture a Northrop Grumman Cygnus capsule that launched on November 17. Mission Control then guided the process of berthing the capsule with the Unity module. The Cygnus delivered 7,400 pounds of research and supplies, including several experiments designed by students! And many more student-designed experiments and education payloads will head to the ISS on the SpaceX CRS-16 launch the first week of December!
