Have spent a lifetime of learning, education, and experiencing only to find we are all the same. We are all we have. The human condition is my precept to understanding and applying the truth to life. There is nothing more than to understand we are not alone. We were created for a grander more loving purpose. Enjoy and revel in the fact we can communicate in so many ways. Believe, also, our destinies will be fulfilled. For all mankind, Our Father, YHWH, Jehovah, God, and all ways to speak the Truth exists. Who wants to join in something so simple, it cannot be denied? Jesus is my Advocate and Savior to God. one in the same. You are all most welcome and revered, in life and eternity. So, enjoy life, enjoy communication, and just be yourself. Do not just give 'lip service' or 'just scan' what you read. Do it!

The Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft arrives to the International Space Station Saturday morning. This image of Cygnus was taken on Feb. 19, 2016, as it was grappled by the Canadarm2 after being unberthed from the Unity module Earth-facing port.

An Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft carrying more than 7,600 pounds of supplies, science and research investigations is set to arrive to the International Space Station early Saturday morning. The uncrewed cargo ship launched at 11:11 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 18 on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida to begin its four-day journey to the orbiting laboratory.

Expedition 51 Flight Engineer Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) will use the station’s robotic Canadarm2 to capture Cygnus at approximately 6:05 a.m. on Saturday, April 22. NASA Television coverage will begin at 4:30 a.m. Installation coverage will resume at 7:30 a.m.

Coverage will air live on NASA Television and stream on the agency’s website at: www.nasa.gov/live.

The mission is Orbital ATK’s seventh contracted commercial resupply services (CRS) mission, and its third launch atop an Atlas V rocket from Florida. Future missions under Orbital ATK’s CRS-1 contract with NASA are expected to resume from the agency’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
