The Space X rocket launch taking off Friday afternoon as it's set to deliver a critical payload to the International Space Station.

The rocket has about two and a half tons of station supplies, including equipment to repair computers.

Much-needed food is also aboard, along with a new spacesuit and spacesuit replacement parts.
