NEW YORK, March 23. /TASS/. US spacecraft Cygnus with 3.5 tons cargo onboard has set off for the International Space Station (ISS). The Atlas V rocket carrier with a cargo spacecraft blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 11:05pm local time (6:05am Moscow time).
NASA said that all parameters are normal and everything is going according to plan.
The launch was initially planned for March 10 but was postponed because one of packages contained black mold found during one of routine checks. Specialists had to conduct additional inspection and disinfection of all cargos bound for ISS.
NASA previously said that it is ready to postpone the launch one more time to 10:40pm local time March 23.
