Commercial Cargo Module Arrives at Wallops

The arrival of an Antonov cargo carrier at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia signals another milestone for NASA’S partnership with industry to re-supply the International Space Station. It brought to Wallops the Cygnus spacecraft’s Pressurized Cargo Module, or PCM. Over the next few months, the PCM will be integrated with the Cygnus service module that includes the spacecraft’s avionics, propulsion and power systems.  credit:  NASA
