SpaceX on Sunday launched its Falcon 9 rocket from NASA’s historic Launch complex – 39A. The launch took place at Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida at 9:38 am EST (1438 GMT).
The Falcon 9 took off with the Dragon Cargo ship carried standard supplies for six astronauts currently at the International Space Station.
Initially, the SpaceX rocket was to take off on Saturday. The launch was cancelled 13 seconds before lift-off due to a technical issue with the rocket engine.
The issue was resolved on Saturday night by replacing the thrust vector control actuator.
The unmanned spaceship packs around 2,500 Kilogrammes of cargo which will be delivered to the space station by February 22, as per a SpaceX spokesperson.
Launchpad 39A is the same Launchpad from which Apollo 11 took off, carrying the first ever humans to reach the lunar surface.

Susan Fowler, through her post, mentions incidents wherein her seniors in the organisation repeatedly discriminated against the female employees of the company.
