Congratulations to Orbital Sciences on Successful Docking

imageAnother great customer success to report:

Orbital Sciences Corporation, a PADT customer and former employer of several staff members, was the second company to commercially doc with the International Space Station.  Those other guys in California owned by the Internet Billionaire always get the bigger press, so we wanted to do a shout out to the OSC team and let them know we are proud of them and all they accomplish, often out of the media spotlight.

We started working with the Arizona group back when they were Space Data Corporation and we have seen success followed by success as they prove out to be the less flashy leader in commercial space. Most people don’t know that OSC made had their 500th mission back in 2006. We are proud to support them as one of their suppliers and wish them further luck in this and other programs.
