Jeff Brody

NASA has scheduled Northrop Grumman's 12th International Space Station commercial resupply launch for Nov. 2.

The company will launch a Cygnus cargo spacecraft aboard an Antares rocket from NASA's Virginia-based Wallops Flight Facility, the space agency said Wednesday.

The cargo spacecraft carries supplies for personnel and activities at the ISS.

The schedule results from the volume of the facility's other activities such as the launch of Japanese cargo this month.
