Orbital ATK’s Cygnus cargo freighter loaded with over 5,000 pounds of crew provisions, equipment and science gear arrived at the International Space Station on Oct. 23.

The mission is named for the late Alan “Dex” Poindexter, a Naval Aviator and two-time space shuttle astronaut who served as pilot and then commander in the waning years of the program.

Cygnus was grappled by the station’s robotic arm and then maneuvered into a berthing port for hatch opening and unloading.
