VIDEO OF THE DAY – SpaceX launches rocket from Kennedy Space Centre

A video of something leaving this planet and going into space, what’s not to love?

Elon Musk’s rocket ‘Dragon’ took off on it’s second attempt, following a failed effort yesterday.

The spacecraft is carrying cargo to the International Space Station and is expected to arrive on Wednesday.

Moments like this always remind me of one of my favourite clips from The West Wing. It’s in an episode called Galileo when Sam Seaborne eloquently, as always, defends the need for space travel.
