Commercial Rocket Makes Trek to Launchpad
On April 6 at Wallops Flight Facility, NASA commercial partner Orbital Sciences Corporation rolled out the first fully-integrated Antares rocket to Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport Pad-0A , in preparation for its inaugural flight. Orbital is testing Antares under NASA's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) program. NASA initiatives like COTS are helping develop a robust U.S. commercial space transportation industry with the goal of achieving safe, reliable and cost-effective transportation to and from the space station and low-Earth orbit.
