Alex Krivenyshev woke up before sunrise Monday morning. Good decision. He saw a rocket over Manhattan:
It was a Northrop Grumman Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus resupply spacecraft to the International Space Station.
The launch from Wallops Island, Virginia, was visible from much of the US eastern seaboard.
“There was uncertainty as to what could be seen in the early morning skies over Manhattan,” says Krivenyshev. “However, those who woke up at 5:35 a.m. were treated to a spectacular show lasting 30-40 seconds with an amazing spiral vapor trail from a separated booster rocket viewed above New York City.”

The Cygnus spacecraft carried some unusual science experiments to the ISS headlined by a human tissue bioprinter.
During its first trip to space in 2019, the BioFabrication Facility successfully printed a partial human knee meniscus and a large number of human heart cells.
The 2019 flight confirmed that microgravity printing produces higher-quality tissue samples compared to those printed on the ground.
Researchers are eager to conduct additional tests in 2022.
