    At 13:05 UTC the Orbital Sciences Cygnus ORB-1 Spacecraft was successfully berthed and attached to the International Space Station after launching on an Antares rocket Thursday from Wallops Flight Facility. The unmanned spacecraft is carrying around 2,780 pounds of cargo which will be unloaded in the coming days and then reloaded with trash which will burn up when the craft destructively re-enters the Earth's atmosphere.
