Space X Falcon 9 with Dragon Successful Launch

After a setback earlier this week, SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon9 rocket bound for the International Space Station (ISS) on a restocking mission. The team hopes to make history by landing the potentially reusable rocket on a barge.

The launch was conducted from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 in Florida as scheduled at 4:50AM (09:50 GMT), NASA reported.

The rocket has a Dragon cargo ship on board, which is carrying some 5,000 pounds of science experiments, technology demonstrations and supplies to replace those lost following the explosion of an Antares rocket seconds after liftoff in October.
