ISS Daily Summary Report – 11/12/2018H-II Transfer Vehicle 7 (HTV7) Status: HTV7 performed a nominal deorbit, on Saturday November 10, concluding a very successful mission. Final telemetry from HTV7 was received at 21:41 GMT (03:41 PM CT) at an altitude of ~104 km. A nominal separation of the HTV Small Re-entry Capsule (HSRC) was conducted during this timeframe.
The launch of Northrop Grumman’s Antares rocket with Cygnus cargo spacecraft has been postponed due to the poor weather forecast for the original launch window on Nov. 15. The revised launch window now opens at 4:23 a.m. EST on Nov. 16 from Pad 0A of Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, located at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Cygnus will separate from the Antares rocket when it reaches orbit nine minutes after launch and begin a two-day journey to the station’s Unity module. Its cymbal-shaped UltraFlex solar arrays will then unfurl to power the vehicle during its flight. Expedition 57 astronauts Alexander Gerst and Serena Auñón-Chancellor will be in the cupola to greet Cygnus Sunday and capture the private cargo carrier with the Canadarm2 robotic arm at 4:35 a.m.
