ExoLab was turned over to NASA on T-4 days.
ExoLab was launched into orbit (after a one day delay) aboard a Cygnus Spacecraft. Powered by an Antares rocket, it reached speeds of more than 27,000 kph to begin to synchronize its orbit with the International Space Station.
About 36 hours after launch, Cygnus is grappled by Canadarm2, a robotic arm controlled by the astronauts.
Early Wednesday 11/15/2017, Astronaut Joseph Acaba, a former school teacher, installed our payload. At 9:16 am PST, ExoLab boots up and began to transmit data to the ground.
