Cygnus grappled by ISS arm on Orb-2 mission (NASA) A Cygnus spacecraft carrying nearly 1,500 kilograms of cargo berthed with the International Space Station on Wednesday morning. The station's robotic arm grappled the Cygnus spacecraft, flying on a mission designated Orb-2, at 6:36 am EDT (1036 GMT) Wednesday. The arm then berthed the Cygnus with a port on the Earth-facing side of the Harmony module at 8:53 am EDT (1253 GMT). The Cygnus was launched Sunday on an Antares rocket from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia. The robotic spacecraft is carrying supplies for the station, including 32 small satellites that will later be deployed from the ISS.
