Cygnus has arrived!

The first operational Cygnus mission to the ISS has arrived, bearing belated Christmas gifts among the one and a half tons of cargo on board the vehicle, and also some passengers: there’s an ant farm on board.  (Click here to read the full manifest; the gifts are probably in the “Crew Suitcases” line item.)

SpaceflightNow posted this lovely video of the Cygnus control room on Earth during capture; note that the team apparently runs at least partly on Cheez-Its.  😉  (Hey, who can blame them?)
