John Glenn became the first US astronaut to orbit the Earth after being launched on a heritage Atlas LV-3B rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida in 1962.

The April 18 launch is the third time that Cygnus is boosted by United Launch Alliance's Atlas V. The launch marks the ULA's 71st overall launch of the rocket and the 36th in the spacecraft's 401 configuration.

An unmanned Orbital ATK cargo ship rocket packed with food and supplies for the astronauts living at the International Space Station blasted off Tuesday from a NASA launch pad.

"We are sorry we missed Easter", said Culbertson, a former NASA astronaut, "but we're pretty sure they'll be excited about their Easter baskets and whatever great things International Space Station science put on board for them".

A space-station supply ship named for Glenn launched Tuesday from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

A livestream screwing up really isn't the end of the world: the rocket made it into orbit just fine, and anyone desperate to watch can still do so now with the recorded video.

Behind the visa program targeted by Trump
Trump said at one point during the presidential campaign that he supported high-skilled visas, then said he opposed the program. Trump plans to sign an order in Wisconsin to tighten rules on technology companies bringing in highly skilled foreign workers.

The 194-foot United Launch Alliance rocket, which rolled to the pad at Launch Complex 41 early Monday morning, is scheduled to launch at 11:11 a.m. ET. The first two space fire experiments took place during previous Cygnus resupply missions.

The shipping agency, Orbital ATK, asked Mr Glenn's widow, Annie, for permission to use his name for the spacecraft, following his death in December.

After payload separation, Centaur ignited a second time at 48 minutes, 30 seconds into its flight to ensure it splashed down in the ocean 1 hour, 7 minutes after liftoff. Viewers will even be allowed to move the camera to get different perspectives and angles of the launch from NASA's YouTube channel.

The Atlas V launch was delayed from March 24 after a hydraulic issue was discovered on ground support equipment.

The Cygnus should arrive at the station a 6:05 am (1005 GMT) on April 22, after the scheduled docking Thursday of a Russian Soyuz spaceship carrying cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and American astronaut Jack Fischer.
