Preparations are underway at Wallops Island Flight facility to launch the next Orbital Sciences Corporation’s resupply mission to the International Space Station.
The mission will lift off no earlier than a few minutes after midnight on October 14th.
It is the third of eight cargo mission planned for the space station under the company’s contract with NASA.
The last mission took off in July without any problems as a summertime crowd gathered at the Flight Facility’s Visitor Center.
That mission took around 33-hundred pounds of cargo to the space station.
