SFN Supply chain issues delay Northrop Grumman’s next space station cargo flight, July 19
Quote
Northrop Grumman’s next resupply flight to the International Space Station has been delayed from mid-August to mid-October by supply chain issues, [Josh Dinman, a Northrop Grumman spokesperson] said Tuesday.

[Dinman] said the NG-18 launch delay is “mainly due to supply chain issues.”

The Cygnus spacecraft’s pressurized cargo module, built by Thales Alenia Space in Italy, has been delivered to the launch site at Wallops Island on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and processing of the Antares launch vehicle for the NG-18 mission continues at the launch site, Dinman said.

The Cygnus service module is undergoing final testing at Northrop Grumman’s satellite manufacturing facility in Dulles, Virginia, according to Dinman.
