The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket lifted off at 4:01 am EST (0901 GMT) Saturday from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island, Virginia, and placed the Cygnus spacecraft into orbit. The Cygnus, named S.S. John Young after the late astronaut, will arrive at the International Space Station early Monday.
