Capitalism in space: After a day delay caused by a stray airplane in the launch zone, Orbital ATK this morning successfully launched Cygnus cargo freighter to ISS with its Antares rocket.

This was the second launch of Antares using new Russian engines rather than refurbished Russian engines from the 1960s.
