Media accreditation is open for the launch from Virginia of Northrop Grummans 14th commercial resupply services mission to deliver NASA science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station aboard its Cygnus spacecraft.

Northrop Grumman is targeting liftoff of its Antares launch vehicle for no earlier than 10:26 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Sept. 29, from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceports Pad-0A at NASAs Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, NASA will credential a limited number of media to cover the Antares launch from Wallops. International media who would be coming from overseas will be unable to register for accreditation for this launch. International media based in the U.S. may apply.
