I'm truly impressed by Orbital and their partners how they performed this test mission.

Such an impressive mission should have a "catch-prase" like the "famous" "Dragon by the Tail" quote from Don Pettit, like James Dean of Florida Today (@flatoday_jdean) suggested, but i have not come up with anything cool yet.

Given the PVGF position on the backside of the Cygnus the naturally equivalent expressions I could think of on the spot would be something like:

"Catch a Swan by the Tailfeathers" (really silly), or

"Grab the Swan's a$$" (really rude).

Surely someone here must have a better suggestion as to what catch-phrase Karen could have said?

Orbital themselves just gave it a go in this tweet:

@AstroKarenN Fantastic photo of #Cygnus.  Thanks for leading the swan to the nest.

Really sweet/nice/cute/"Aawww...", but not much of a cool-factor...

Swan's could be sort-of cool, like The "Cyggi" mascot in MCC-H.

Looks like we were premature with our name of the Keg Party thread.    Maybe next launch?

This is PERFECT, you guys! The next party thread has justification now for being called a Kegger.

Considering it will launch in the middle of the night full and provide a nice light show, how about a rave?

Another co-incidence is that December 15 is roughly the same time when the Chinese will try putting their lander, rover & flag on the Moon (give or take 2-3 days either side....), so maybe we need to get drunk for the upcoming Christmas invasion of lunar territory.   ;)

A huge send out of congrats to the teams at Orbital for pulling off such a great misision.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.
