Video: Nasa images show Cygnus detach from Space Station

Published 19/02/2014

At 17,500mph, supply spacecraft Cygnus detaches from the International Space Station and heads for a fiery demise as it approaches Earth's atmosphere. Orbital Sciences' Cygnus cargo craft was detached and released from the International Space Station Feb. 18, more than a month after delivering a ton of supplies and experiments to the Expedition 38 crew. Cygnus will be commanded by Orbital Sciences' flight controllers to fire its engines Feb. 19, which will send it into a destructive reentry into the Earth's atmosphere. Credit: Youtube/NASA
