The north-american expression "swan dive" is going to get a new and spectacular meaning later today!     ;D

Congratulations to Orbital, NASA and their partners on a near flawless mission!

A great end to a new beginning for commercial orbital spaceflight!  (i.e. the COTS program)

After the next great step (starting affordable commercial crew transport) is done, spaceflight could be liberated from stagnation for good!    8)

Happy Happy Happy!

We have lost the signal from #Cygnus.  Reentry accomplished.  Represents the official completion of our COTS program with @NASA partners

The G. David Low Cygnus spacecraft has reentered Earth's atmosphere. We're sure its namesake would be proud of the Orbital and NASA team
