Small asteroid 2013 LR6 flew safely by this past evening at 9:42 p.m. PDT (which is June 8 at 12:42 a.m. EDT/June 8 at 04:42 UTC) at a distance of about 65,000 miles (105,000 kilometers) above Earth's surface. The space rock, which is about 30 feet (10 meters) in diameter, will be above the Southern Ocean, south of Tasmania, at the time of closest approach. Asteroid 2013 LR6 was discovered by the NASA-sponsored Catalina Sky Survey on June 6.   Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Roscosmos Successfully Launched the Russian Progress 51 Cargo Craft - April 24, 2013 6:12am EDT
The unpiloted ISS Progress 51 Russian cargo craft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 6:12 a.m. EDT Wednesday on a traditional two-day trip to the International Space Station.
The Progress made it safely to orbit and deployed its solar arrays as planned. One of the antennas for the KURS automated rendezvous system did not deploy. Progress will be filled with refuse and then deorbited to burn up in the atmosphere.
Orbital Sciences Successfully Launched the Antares/Cygnus A-ONE Test Mission today April 21, 2013
At 5:00PM EDT / Sunday April 21, 2013
Orbital Sciences Corporation launched its Antares rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va. carrying a payload of a mock Cygnus spacecraft and three Cube Phone Satellites into orbit. The next mission will dock with the ISS carrying cargo as part of the NASA (COTS) (CRS) commercial resupply program. Cygnus will be filled with refuse and then deorbited to burn up in the atmosphere.
Orbital Reschedules Antares A-ONE Mission for April 20, 2013
Orbital has determined that the next launch attempt for the new Antares rocket will be no earlier than Saturday, April 20, at 5:00 p.m. The mission management team met this afternoon to evaluate weather forecasts and optimum crew work schedules to provide two back-to-back opportunities for a launch attempt. Weather conditions deteriorate on Friday, April 19, but improve significantly over the next two days increasing the chances for acceptable conditions at launch time. This also allows the Antares launch team a day of rest before back-to-back opportunities on Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21. Credit: Orbital Sciences
International Space Station Astronauts Spacewalk (ISS) (EVA): 9:30AM EDT / Friday April 19, 2013 - Russian Cosmonauts Pavel Vinogradov and Roman Romanenko performed the spacewalk. These two members of the Expedition 35 crew ventured outside the International Space Station on April 19 for a six-hour spacewalk to deploy and retrieve several science experiments and install a new navigational aid.

Statement Regarding the Antares Launch Postponement - April 17, 2013
Orbital announced that a premature separation of a launch pad umbilical connection to the Antares upper stage used for data communications halted today's countdown of the Antares test launch at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va. Engineers are currently analyzing what occurred to determine what measures will be taken to resolve the issue.
  During a launch countdown, safeguards are put in place to periodically verify that all systems are functioning as planned. With twelve minutes left in the count, the launch team identified the anomaly and called a scrub of today's test launch attempt.
  The next launch attempt is tentatively set for no earlier than Friday, April 19, pending final resolution of the issue and acceptable weather conditions.
  "We are still examining all of the data, but it appears that the issue is fairly straightforward," said Mr. Frank Culbertson, Orbital's Executive Vice President and Mission Director for the Antares Test Flight. "With this being the first launch of the new system from a new launch facility we have taken prudent steps to ensure a safe and successful outcome. Today, our scrub procedures were exercised and worked as planned. We are looking forward to a successful launch on Friday." Credit: Orbital Sciences

UPDATE: 7:30pm EDT April 17, 2013: Orbital Sciences Corporation has confirmed the next probable attempt to test launch its Antares rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va., will be no earlier than Friday, April 19, at 5 p.m. EDT.
UPDATE: 5:00pm EDT April 17, 2013: Launch was scrubbed during the T-12 min hold due to a loss of an umbilical to the 2nd stage of Antares.
