After numerous delays, the International Space Station (ISS)-bound Orb-2 mission is slated to launch early Sunday afternoon from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va. Look up into the skies and you may catch a glimpse in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

[It] will be carrying 3,300 pounds of supplies for the ISS, including food, science experiments to expand the research capability of the space station’s Expedition 40 crew members, and tools. Many student experiments will be on board as well.
