Cygnus grappled by ISS arm on Orb-2 mission (NASA) NASA delayed a decision on awarding follow-on cargo contracts to support the International Space Station Thursday, but did drop one of the companies from the competition. NASA said it needed more time to evaluate proposals submitted in late 2014 for the Commercial Resupply Services 2 competition, a set of contracts to transport cargo to and from the ISS similar to those held today by Orbital ATK and SpaceX. NASA said it now expects to award those contracts no later than January 30. One of the companies that did submit a proposal, Boeing, said it was notified by NASA it was no longer being considered for a contract, but did not provide an explanation. Other companies that submitted proposals include Lockheed Martin, Orbital, Sierra Nevada, and SpaceX.
