The SpaceX and NASA team will have to wait until the International Space Station is back in the right orbital position to launch the rocket. They will try again on Saturday and if that is aborted then they will try a third time on Sunday.

In addition to the astronauts, the rocket, which has been dubbed the Dragon, will be carrying two items.

One is a series of indestructible custom art pieces by a Los Angeles artist that celebrate humanity. They're made from gold, brass and aluminium.
