A United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket launches the Orbital Sciences Cygnus module on its fifth resupply flight to
the ISS, known as OA-6 (OA-5 is now the sixth mission and will mark the return of the Antares rocket at Wallops
Island, Virginia later this year). The mission came as a result of the failed launch of an Antares rocket in 2014
at Wallops. Above, Atlas arcs over a Delta 4-Heavy as it was readying for launch later this year. ULA photos.
