SpaceX Rocket Launches With 'Holiday Treats' for Crew on International Space Station

A SpaceX spacecraft carrying supplies, science equipment, and “holiday treats” for crew on the International Space Station (ISS) was successfully launched from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the morning of December 21.

This footage, released by NASA, shows the Cargo Dragon, powered by a Falcon 9 rocket, lifting off at 5:07 am, and the craft separating a short time later for its journey to the station.

“Dragon is delivering about 6,500 pounds of crew supplies and new science experiments including a cancer treatment study and a handheld bioprinter,” NASA wrote in a post prior to the launch. Credit: NASA via Storyful
