In the statement, it was stated that Northrop Grumman company collected data on the operation of the device to determine the cause of the malfunction.

On the other hand, despite the disruption, it was noted that Cgynus had enough energy to arrive at the station at the scheduled time.

The solar arrays of the unmanned cargo vehicle, which were closed during the launch process, then open up to take the form of a round propeller.

The Cgynus cargo shuttle carrying the necessary materials to the station does not return to Earth again. Before leaving the station, the cargo vehicle, which is loaded with the waste materials produced here, is destroyed by burning in the Earth’s atmosphere.
