It’s liftoff for US spacecraft Dragon which has successfully launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida, following a setback earlier this week. However, an attempt to land a re-usable rocket on a barge has failed.

The craft being carried by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket, is bound for the International Space Station (ISS) with 1.6 tonnes of supplies including some 2,000 kilos of science experiments. In particular a system for monitoring cloud formation as well as materials for researching brain diseases under space conditions.

It is expected to rendezvous with the ISS on Monday, staying for a month before making the descent back to Earth.
