MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. Astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) "caught" the Cygnus cargo spacecraft with the Canadarm manipulator. NASA TV broadcasted the process.
Commander Peggy Whitson of NASA and flight engineer Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency captured the Cygnus cargo spacecraft and installed it to the ISS Harmony module at 12.39 GMT (8.39 EDT).
Cygnus is carrying 3.5 tonnes of cargoes, including food, instruments, equipment for space walks and computer components for about 250 experiments to be staged during the 51st and 52nd expeditions to the ISS. It also brought the IceCube experimental mini satellite.
After docking with the ISS Cygnus will stay in orbit for about three months. It will be loaded with garbage and waste from the ISS for further disposal.
