Rami Intriago took up mechanical engineering in college after interning with an aerosapce company. He quickly learned to value teamwork and partnerships and is applying that with NASA Commercial Crew Program. [ Go.nasa.gov Link ]
The Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft continues to undergo processing in the Space Station Processing Facility ahead of its CRS-7 mission. Scheduled to launch on March 19, 2017, Cygnus will deliver thousands of pounds of supplies, equipment and scientific research materials to the space station.
Traveling about 250 miles over the south Pacific, the unpiloted ISS Progress 66 Russian cargo ship docked at 3:30 a.m. EST this morning to the Pirs Docking Compartment of the International Space Station.
The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft successfully docked with the Harmony module of the International Space Station at 8:12 a.m. EST this morning. The hatch between the newly arrived spacecraft and the Harmony module of the space station is scheduled to be opened this afternoon. The capsule will spend about four weeks attached to the station.
The SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft waved off its planned rendezvous with the International Space Station at 3:25 a.m. EST. Onboard computers triggered the abort after recognizing an incorrect value in data about the location of the space station. Per the re-rendezvous plan built into every mission, the spacecraft automatically reset for another rendezvous and docking attempt in 24 hours.

The launch may have been scrubbed for today, but our #NASASocial group got the next best thing -they were given Zinnia seeds that were actually flown on board the International Space Station! They are left over from an experiment that involved growing a Zinnia flower in space. Needless to say, everyone was pretty excited.
