NASA astronaut Jack Fischer posted this video Thursday saying, “How super cool this is! Our robot arm releases Cygnus and the spaceship flies away! Moments like this happen all the time on @iss”. The Cygnus spacecraft had been docked to the International Space Station since April and was released on June 4, after delivering supplies and science to the crew onboard. Cygnus will remain in orbit for a week in support of the SAFFIRE experiment, which studies fire in microgravity. Credit: NASA
