NASA will hold a pre-launch briefing for the Northrop Grumman NG-15 cargo launch to the International Space Station (ISS) on February 19, 2021 at 11:00 am ET.

The NG-15 Cygnus spacecraft is scheduled for launch the next day at 12:36 pm ET on an Antares rocket from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, VA.

Northrop Grumman names each of its Cygnus spacecraft after a renowned figure in the space program.
