ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Astronauts onboard the International Space Station successfully installed on Sunday (January 12) a supply spacecraft that is comprised of vital science experiments, provisions and other parts for the crew. The spacecraft, known as Cygnus, carried 2,780 pounds of supplies, which will be retrieved on Monday when the astronauts open the hatch to Cygnus. Cygnus was launched on Thursday. The spacecraft was attached to a rocket, which was launched from a NASA facility in Virginia. Cygnus will stay at the International Space Station until February when officials have plans to detach it, and send it toward a destructive re-entry in Earth's atmosphere.
