SpaceX launches station cargo flight
US company SpaceX has launched its latest re-supply mission to the International Space Station (ISS).
The California firm's Falcon-9 rocket successfully executed its ascent from Cape Canaveral, Florida, deploying the Dragon freighter on a path to the orbiting platform.
The capsule is carrying just over two tonnes of food, equipment and science experiments.
These stores are expected to arrive at the ISS on Sunday.
