We recently visited Kennedy space center in Florida and got to see a rocket launch here are the details of its mission below and I thought I would share this really cool moment with you all. My Dad wanted to take a rocket selfie!

SpaceX is scheduled to launch Dragon CRS-14 aboard Falcon 9 for a resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The delivery of supplies and equipment will include science investigations for National Laboratory research. Highlights include:
The Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor, an Earth observatory that will study severe thunderstorms and their role in the Earth’s atmosphere and climate.
An investigation that seeks to better understand how the lack of gravity affects a process used to produce high-performance products from metal powders. This research could lead to improved manufacturing techniques.
Continuing research on growing food in space, as the Veggie Passive Orbital Nutrient Delivery System experiment tests a new way to deliver nutrients to plants.
This mission will launch from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
