Friday's launch marks the second dual-Cygnus flight for Northrop Grumman.
This is the fourth launch of Cygnus under the CRS-2 contract. Northrop Grumman launched the Cygnus NG-12 vehicle in early November while an even earlier vehicle, NG-11, was still in orbit.
The Cygnus spacecraft arrived at the space station Feb. 18, three days after launching aboard an Antares rocket from Wallops Island, Virginia.
The Cygnus spacecraft is an expendable American cargo spacecraft developed by Orbital Sciences Corporation and now built and launched by Northrop Grumman Space Systems as part of NASA's Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) program. With the Cygnus now in orbit, it is set to arrive at and berth with the ISS early Nov. 19, one day after the docking of a Progress cargo spacecraft launched by Russia Nov. 16.
