Quick take from article.

NG11 will have gyros added to Cygnus for attitude control, currently uses thrusters. This will safe fuel allow them operate up to a year in orbit. Plan is to do more additional missions after leaving ISS.

And most interestingly (although it won't be demonstrated in NG-11, but would be easy enough to implement if the test objectives are successful), it would be able to redock to ISS. Will Cygnus shortly be the first operational man-tended free-flyer?

I don't see "p.m" in the original Russian  (and that would be after your post anyway!)

Thus far, NASA has not yet expressed interest in or need for a larger pressurized Cygnus launch on an Atlas V or the external payload-only version of Cygnus, both of which were mandated by the CRS2 contract application guidelines.



Hi guy!

In the article of Chris Gebhardt of the February 25, 2019 I had red about other versions of the Cygnus. Where I can find images or drawings of these versions? I would be interested to build the model  kit of these versions. Thanks to anyone who could  help me in this search.
