A rocket has lifted off in Florida, carrying the first ever 3D printer for astronauts at the International Space Station.

The un-manned cargo ship, called SpaceX, rocketed away from earth also carrying spacesuit batteries, food, clothes and a special device for measuring ocean winds.

A robotic arm at the space station will be used to reach out and grab the spacecraft to access the supplies.

It will reach the International Space Station on Tuesday.
