Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket took to the sky at 9:59 Eastern Time this morning carrying over 8,000 pounds of research and supplies. This marks a successful launch to the NG-12 re-supply mission headed for the International Space Station. Many onlookers drove for hours to see the launch and just couldn't wait to soak in the spectacle. Most showed up around 6 this morning.
No joke --- three Americans, two Russians and one Italian walked into a rocket! Now they're on their way to the International Space Station.
