NASA will hold a briefing on November 1, 2019 at 11:30 am ET to preview science experiments that will be delivered to the International Space Station (ISS) by Northrop Grumman’s Cyngus spacecraft.  These flights began with Orbital Sciences Corporation, which later merged with ATK to become Orbital ATK, which later was bought by Northrop Grumman.  Earlier launches in this series were designated “Orb” or “OA.”
