Watch The Antares Rocket Blast Its Way Into Space

Orbital Sciences in partnership with NASA completed a successful launch of the Antares rocket this morning (local time). It all happened pretty early, so you can be forgiven for missing it, but thankfully, it's right here, ready for you to watch.

The Antares rocket is what Orbital Sciences plans to use to launch the Cygnus spacecraft. It's all part of NASA's partnership with the private sector to launch resupply missions to the International Space Station and beyond.
