Space X sends four astronauts to Space Station

Private rocket company SpaceX has launched four astronauts to the International Space Station.

Takeoff from Kennedy Space Center in Florida had to be exactly on schedule at 7.27pm local time. This was to ensure they caught the International Space Station as it circled the Earth overhead.

It is only the second time that a Space X rocket have been used to send people to orbit.

The crew comprised of three US space agency (Nasa) astronauts – Commander Michael Hopkins, Victor Glover and Shannon Walker – and the highly experienced Japanese space agency (Jaxa) astronaut Soichi Noguchi.

The group will spend roughly six months on the station, raising its complement to seven.
