SpaceX launches commercial rocket

A commercial rocket has launched from Cape Canaveral.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket blasted off on Sunday from Florida, launching the cargo-laden Dragon capsule toward the International Space Station for Nasa's first privately-run supply mission.

It took off as scheduled and is set to reach the orbiting space lab on Wednesday.
