Cygnus spacecraft reaches ISS


A supply space craft has arrived at the International Space Station, bringing fresh food, equipment and experiments for the crew.

The Cygnus capsule, developed by Orbital ATK, is delivering 8,000 pounds of groceries and gear.

Orbital ATK even hinted that there may be a few Easter eggs aboard for the crew of the orbiting lab.

The supply ship also contains kit for a controlled fire experiment planned for May.

The plan is for a blaze to be started on board the Cygnus once it is full of trash – to see how a fire spreads in the weightlessness of space.
