WASHINGTON, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Media accreditation now is open for the launch of the third NASA contracted cargo resupply flight from Virginia to the International Space Station by Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles, Virginia.
The Orbital-3 cargo resupply mission will launch no earlier than 12:10 a.m. EDT Tuesday, Oct. 14, from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport's Pad-0A at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility.
International media without U.S. citizenship must apply by Monday, Sept. 15, for credentials to cover prelaunch and launch activities at Wallops. The application deadline is Thursday, Oct. 9, for media who are U.S. citizens. Journalists should send their accreditation request to Keith Koehler at [email protected].
This will be the third of eight planned cargo resupply missions by Orbital for NASA under the agency's Commercial Resupply Services contract with the company. Cargo resupply by U.S. companies ensures a national capability to deliver critical science research to the space station, significantly increasing NASA's ability to conduct new science investigations aboard the only laboratory in microgravity.
