Video: NASA's Orbital cargo ship arrives at International Space Station


Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo ship arrived at the International Space Station on Wednesday, carrying more than 7,000 pounds (3,000 kilograms) of water, food, supplies and even Christmas presents for global astronauts.

'Capture confirmed,' a NASA commentator said at 6:19 am (1119 GMT), as NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren, operating the Canadian made robotic arm from inside the space station, reached out and grabbed the beer-keg shaped spaceship.
